Statewide appropriations to CareerTech will be used to continue to expand CRC efforts across the state. The program will continue current operations and processes which include but are not limited to:
1. Each student/client must be given all three WorkKeys® assessments to have the opportunity to earn an OKCRC. Individual assessments may not be given on this realm (site license) through the Department of CareerTech’s (ODCTE) contract with ACT.
2. Each individual may re-take the WorkKeys assessments
only one time. Before re-taking the WorkKeys assessments, the site
administrator must verify re-completion in the skill area in CR101 to one level
higher than the student/job seeker desires to achieve. A maximum of two
attempts may be made using the sites WorkKeys license through ODCTE. After
this, the site must purchase and/or utilize their WorkKeys license direct with
ACT (the realm that the site pays for the WorkKeys assessments). Failure to
comply may result in loss of WorkKeys license through ODCTE’s contract with
3. CRC wallet cards are for sale by
assessment site for $2 each. Sites
either purchase the cards for all students/clients or for none. Purchase orders issued in FY13 expired on June
30, 2013. CRC wallet cards will not
issue in FY14 until a purchase order made out to Oklahoma Department of
CareerTech for the estimated amount of cards at $2 each is submitted to Debbi
Butterfield at firstname.lastname@example.org. Assessment sites will be invoiced
monthly unless accumulated monthly activity is less than $50. In this case, an
invoice will be issued when $50 is reached. Payment is to be made to Dept. of
CareerTech upon receipt of the invoice.
4. OKCRC site administrators are required
to have a current OKCRC Information Disclosure and Confidentiality Agreement on
file with Dept. of CareerTech, CRC office.
Contact Susan Kuzmic at email@example.com to verify.
5. Oklahoma WorkKeys® assessment sites, licensed through
the ODCTE’s contract with ACT, are strongly recommended to have a current
Career Ready 101 license to pre-assess and prepare students/job seekers for the
WorkKeys assessments. Sites without a current CR101 license may be removed from
the ODCTE’s contract with ACT.
