ACT Announces Timeline for Changes to WorkKeys Assessments and NCRC

ACT is excited to announce great changes coming to ACT WorkKeys Assessments! To that end, we’ve created a quick-reference timeline to help you better understand and plan for the upcoming changes to the program.

Committed to serving your needs
ACT is steadfastly committed to the workforce market and to our mission to help people achieve workplace success. We are honoring this commitment by making significant investments in our WorkKeys program, including important updates to our WorkKeys NCRC assessments and credential, which you can learn more about below.
Our teams are working diligently to make new and updated products available starting in June 2017. We look forward to supporting our customers through transition to the new products throughout the Summer and early Fall of 2017.

Keeping you updated and informed
To better support planning and execution of these transitions, we want to ensure that all customers have the information they need available at a glance. To that end, we have created a news and resource site for you to seek answers to common questions, receive announcements, and register for a number of upcoming free ACT WorkKeys webinars.
Please bookmark this link and refer to it often as it will be updated over the coming months with more detailed information on these updates and how they will affect you.

What’s changing
The ACT WorkKeys National Career Readiness Certificate assessments and credential will be updated to ensure ongoing relevance and alignment to the changing skill requirements of today’s jobs. The updated assessments will be delivered on a new modernized delivery platform that offers improved stability, security and a better user experience.

Available starting June 2017:
ACT WorkKeys NCRC Assessments
  • ACT WorkKeys Applied Math (formerly Applied Mathematics)
  • ACT WorkKeys Graphic Literacy (formerly Locating Information)
  • ACT WorkKeys Workplace Documents (formerly Reading for Information)
ACT WorkKeys National Career Readiness Certificate (WorkKeys NCRC)

What’s the same
The updated assessments will continue to measure the same core set of broadly relevant career readiness skills that have historically been measured by the NCRC assessments. The updated credential will continue to be a reliable signal of career readiness, trusted by job seekers, employers, and educators around the globe.

Thank you for being a valued ACT customer!
