WorkKeys Testing

What is WorkKeys?

WorkKeys is a series of assessments that measure the skills that are crucial for job success. Testing includes the following skill areas:

Applied Math (Formerly Applied Mathematics)

The Applied Math assessment measures critical thinking, mathematical reasoning, and problem solving techniques for situations that actually occur in today‚Äôs workplace. While individuals may use calculators and conversion tables to help with the problems on the assessment, math skills are still needed to think them through. 

Graphic Literacy  (Formerly Locating Information)

Workplace graphics come in a variety of formats, but all communicate a level of information. From charts to graphs, diagrams to floor plans, identifying what information is being presented and understanding how to use it are critical to success. The Graphic Literacy assessment measures the skill needed to locate, synthesize, and use information from workplace graphics. 

Workplace Documents (Formerly Reading for Information

Employees need to be able to understand written text to do a job. The Workplace Documents assessment measures the skills people use when they read and use written text such as memos, letters, directions, signs, notices, bulletins, policies, and regulations on the job.  

These assessments are viewed by employers as the most important skills needed for any occupation.  Successful completion in all three skill areas will result in a Career Readiness Certificate (CRC).
