On Monday, November 21st at 8 am, McNary will be offering the WorkKeys test. But what is the WorkKeys test and why does it matter to you? WorkKeys assessments have been used for more than two decades to measure essential workplace skills and help people build career pathways. According to the WorkKeys website,
WorkKeys assessments measure skills that employers feel are essential to success in the workplace. Students, job seekers, and seasoned professionals can use WorkKeys to learn more about their strengths and weaknesses and gain a valid way to demonstrate their abilities to employers. Educators and employers can use it to help take the guesswork out of determining student, applicant, and employee qualifications.
It’s kinda like the SAT, but instead of measuring how ready you are for college, it measures how ready you are to work. A great benefit of taking this test is it can help you meet your Graduation Essential Skills requirements for Math and Reading. If you’re interested, you can sign up outside the Testing Lab.
