WorkKeys is a skills assessment system that helps employers select, hire, train, develop, and retain a quality workforce.  The assessments measure foundational and soft skills.  WorkKeys assessments measure skills that employers feel are essential to success in the workplace.

Students, job seekers, and seasoned professionals can use WorkKeys to learn more about their strengths and weaknesses and gain a valid way to demonstrate their abilities to employers. Educators and employers can use it to help take the guesswork out of determining student, applicant, and employee qualifications.

Each WorkKeys assessment offers varying levels of difficulty.  The levels build on each other, incorporating the skills assessed at the previous levels.  For example, at Level 5, individuals need the skills from Levels 3, 4, and 5.  The complexity can also increase as the quantity and/or density of the information increases.

Successful completion of WorkKeys assessments in Reading for Information, Applied Mathematics, and Locating Information can lead to earning the National Career Readiness Certificate (NCRC), a portable credential earned by more than 3 million people across the United States. (Source:
