What is WorkKeys?

WorkKeys is a system of assessments, curriculum, and skill profiles that build and measure essential workplace skills that can affect job performance and increase opportunities for career changes and advancement.


Unlike other assessments, WorkKeys assessments don’t simply give an indication of ready and writing competency. Instead they measure a range of hard and soft skills relevant to any occupation, at any level, across industries.

WorkKeys Curriculum

Help your students improve the skills needed for workplace success. ACT WorkKeys Curriculum is anchored by decades of research describing the impact of foundational skills and behaviors on job performance across the United States. It’s a proven tool for helping individuals acquire skills critical to workplace success.
