WIN Learning’s Ready to Work Career Readiness Test

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Preparing students who are College- and Career-Ready is an important responsibility of Greenville County Schools and the State of South Carolina. We want to ensure that all students have the skills necessary to pursue future education or begin a career after high school. In late March 2020, your child was scheduled to participate in WIN Learning’s Ready to Work (R2W) career readiness testing program. However, due to school closures, students did not have the opportunity to take this assessment. Therefore, all students in their fourth year in high school will take the Ready to Work assessment during the fall testing window.

The R2W test consists of four multiple-choice timed tests – Applied Mathematics, Reading for Information, Locating Information, and Essential Soft Skills. The R2W tests measure real-world skills that employers believe are critical to job success. Students may earn WIN’s Ready to Work credential and an Essential Soft Skills credential, which are recognized by businesses and industries nationwide. 

Ready to Work Tests: Time Allotted
Applied Mathematics: 55 minutes
Reading for Information: 55 minutes
Locating Information: 55 minutes
Essential Soft Skills: 60  minutes
 

The testing schedule will be as follows:

 

Monday, Oct 19th - Blue Color Group In-Person

Tuesday, Oct 20th - Red Color Group In-Person

Wednesday, Oct 21st - Green Color Group In-Person

Thursday, Oct 22nd - Purple Color Group In-Person

 

Wednesday, Nov 4th - Virtual Blue/Green Color Groups

Thursday, Nov 5th - Virtual Red/Purple Color Groups

Monday, Nov 9th-Thursday, Nov 12th - Makeups


SAT/ACT Test Administrations

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Preparing students who are College and Career-Ready is an important responsibility of Greenville County Schools and the State of South Carolina. We want to ensure that all students have the skills necessary to pursue future education or begin a career after high school. To this end, the South Carolina Department of Education is offering students in grade 11 who did not test last spring (ACT or SAT) the opportunity to participate in this year’s administration.

The ACT is offered in February 2021(Actual Date TBD), and the SAT is offered on Tuesday, April 27, 2021.

You may explore the links below for more information on the ACT or SAT to help determine the best test for your child. Should you have any questions about the tests, please contact your school counselor.

·           SAT Information:  https://goo.gl/WW6DXT 

 
The ACT and SAT prompts your student to complete a pre-test survey. The student must provide a mailing address, which is used to mail the student his/her scores. The student may choose to send test scores to up to four colleges or scholarship programs and provide other optional student-specific information (e.g., student achievement, courses, grades, future plans, religion, and interests). The testing contractor (i.e., ACT or College Board for SAT) retains both the student’s test scores and, if completed, the student information identified in the surveys. ACT or College Board may use and share information obtained from the optional section of the survey with others for additional uses, such as research.

Please complete the Google Form below to indicate your testing choice.
