WorkKeys assesses your “real world” skills. Core assessment measures skills in Workplace Documents (replaced Reading for Information), Applied Mathematics, and Graphic Literacy (replaced Locating Information), three skills that are highly important to the majority of jobs in the workplace. WorkKeys measures skills that employers consider essential to success on the job. Having a skills credential that is locally and nationally recognized facilitates job placement, retention, and advancement. Scores are available at the end of the testing session.
