Working Key Testing

Work Keys Testing  
Many of Adult Education classes now require that students take Work Keys tests before entering the class. WorkKeys assessments measure cognitive abilities such as applied mathematics, reading for information, and locating information.  Following is a brief description of each of these tests. 

 Applied Mathematics:  This assessment measures the skill people use when they apply mathematical reasoning, critical thinking, and problem-solving techniques to work-related problems. The test questions require the examinee to set up and solve the types of problems and do the types of calculations that actually occur in the workplace. This test is designed to be taken with a calculator. A formula sheet that includes all formulas required for the assessment is provided. While individuals may use calculators and conversion tables to help with the problems, they still need to use math skills to think them through.

 Reading for Information:  The WorkKeys Reading for Information test measures the skill people use when they read and use written text in order to do a job. The written texts include memos, letters, directions, signs, notices, bulletins, policies, and regulations. It is often the case that workplace communications are not necessarily well-written or targeted to the appropriate audience. Reading for Information materials do not include information that is presented graphically, such as in charts, forms, or blueprints.

 Location Information:  The WorkKeys Locating Information test measures the skill people use when they work with workplace graphics. Examinees are asked to find information in a graphic or insert information into a graphic. They also must compare, summarize, and analyze information found in related graphics.

 Each test takes approximately one hour to complete.  Calculators and pencils are provided.

Testing: Aug 26, Sept 30, Nov 25, Jan 13, March 24, May 19  Monday  5:00pm  $65
