WorkKeys/Para testing

The National Career Readiness Certificate is the national standard in certifying workplace skills.  Requested and required by employers across the nation, the Certificate allows individuals to demonstrate their level of skill in the most common skills required for success in the workplace.

How It Works

The Certificate is based on ACT's world-renowned WorkKeys® assessments - which remain the only proven system for linking job skills with workplace success.  To earn the Certificate, you must take three WorkKeys® assessments - Applied MathematicsReading for Information, and Locating Information.  Your WorkKeys® scores will determine what level of the Certificate you are eligible to earn:

  • Bronze - scores at least a level 3 in each of the three core areas and has the necessary foundational skills for 35 percent of the jobs in the WorkKeys database.
  • Silver - scores at least a level 4 in each of the three core areas and has the necessary foundational skills for 65 percent of the jobs in the WorkKeys database.
  • Gold - scores at least a level 5 in each of the three core areas and has the necessary foundational skills for 90 percent of the jobs in the WorkKeys database.
  • Platinum - scores at least a level 6 in each of the three core areas and has the necessary foundational skills for 99 percent of the jobs in the WorkKeys database.
There is a $30* cash or MO fee (*fee is subject to change) for testing. Please contact Ms. Joni Pollin at 918-336-3311 extension 1011  to learn more about the process and schedule a testing session.
