This year, 11th grade students in South Carolina will take the ACT WorkKeys on March 22. The SC Department of Education has defined 11th grade students as for students who are in their third year of high school after their initial enrollment in the ninth grade.

The ACT WorkKeys test consists of three multiple choice timed tests (45 minutes per test)—Reading for Information, Applied Mathematics, and Locating Information. ACT does allow students to access an ACT-approved calculator during the Applied Mathematics test only. Review allowable calculators for this assessment.

The ACT WorkKeys test measures real world skills that employers believe are critical to job success. Students may earn the ACT’s National Career Readiness Certificate (NCRC), which is recognized by businesses and industries nationwide.
