Kansas WORKReady! Certificate

Overview
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.

Four 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.
