RegiSTAR Certificate Management Services

ACT National Career Readiness Certificate

RegiSTAR, an online system used for the reporting of ACT NCRC certificates, facilitates the issuance and management of ACT NCRCs by institutions that provide them to examinees. RegiSTAR automatically sweeps your test site (or sites) for ACT WorkKeys assessment scores, registering the certificates and creating accounts for eligible examinees. The benefits of RegiSTAR include:

  • Certificates earned by your students are automatically generated and registered in the ACT database.
  • Online accounts are automatically created for students to easily access, share assessment and credential scores, and enable verification by employers.
  • Certificate and test data reports are available in graphical or extract format.
  • Printing and shipping of certificates is available at the state, district or school level.

RegiSTAR Reporting

Automatic Reports

As part of its weekly sweep, RegiSTAR automatically produces two data reports that show you who tested during the past week and who earned National Career Readiness Certificates. When these reports are ready, the designated RegiSTAR administrator receives an email notification. These files are available for 30 days from notification.

Manual Reports

RegiSTAR also allows you to generate your own data or graphical reports based on date ranges and testing locations. You can run these reports whenever you need them.
