Kansas WORKReady!
Information for Education Institutions (School Districts and Community Colleges)

Kansas WORKReady! is an initiative that uses WorkKeys® assessments to award Career Readiness Certificates to individuals to document their skills in:
  • Applied Mathematics: measures skills used to apply mathematical reasoning and problem-solving techniques to work-related problems.

  • Locating Information: measures skills used to work with workplace graphics such as charts, graphs, tables, forms, maps, diagrams, and instrument gauges.

  • Reading for Information: measures skills used to read and use written text to do a job such as memos, letters, directions, signs, policies, and regulations.
WorkKeys® is a reliable and nationally-validated assessment used to evaluate and analyze workplace skills. Thousands of jobs are "profiled" to identify skill levels necessary to perform each job. Skills measured by WorkKeys® are transferable; skills necessary for most jobs. Tasks are based on workplace situations and do not require job-specific knowledge.

An employer uses the Kansas WORKReady! Certificate as an additional tool to identify quality applicants. A job seeker presents the certificate to potential employers as documentation of work skill levels.

Kansas WORKReady! Certificates have four levels: Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum.
  • Bronze: an individual has core skills for approximately 35% of the jobs profiled by WorkKeys®.

  • Silver: an individual has core skills for approximately 65% of the jobs profiled by WorkKeys®.

  • Gold: an individual has core skills for approximately 90% of the jobs profiled by WorkKeys®.

  • Platinum: an individual has core skills for approximately 99% of the jobs profiled by WorkKeys®.
