WorkKeys


Students will take the Workkeys Assessment their senior year. WorkKeys is used to measure skills considered necessary in the workplace. The assessment provides individualized information on student achievement in a set of academic skills relevant to the workplace. It also provides students, parents, and schools feedback on academic needs to be addressed prior to high school graduation. The three WorkKeys tests to be provided to Kentucky students are Reading for Information, Applied Mathematics, and Locating Information.


These three WorkKeys assessments are the basis for the
National College Readiness Certificate program.
