An employer uses the Kansas WORKReady! certificate as an additional tool to identify quality applicants.

Kansas WORKReady! uses WorkKeys® assessments to award Career Readiness Certificates to individuals to document their skills in:

  • Applied Mathematics, which measures the skills people use when they apply mathematical reasoning and problem-solving techniques to work-related problems.
  • Locating Information, which measures the skill people use when they work with workplace graphics such as charts, graphs, tables, forms, maps, diagrams, and instrument gauges.
  • Reading for Information, which measures the skill people use when they read and use written text in order to do a job such as memos, letters, directions, signs, policies, and regulations.

WorkKeys® is a reliable and nationally validated system evaluating and analyzing workplace skills. Thousands of jobs are “profiled” to identify skill levels necessary to perform each job. Skills measured by WorkKeys® are transferable skills – skills necessary for most jobs. Tasks are based on workplace situations and do not require job-specific knowledge.
