Scotland County Schools will begin their first groups of WorkKeys testing on February 3-6, 2015.
The WorkKeys system from ACT is being used in high schools across the state (as part of the North Carolina school-wide accountability and one of the Districts AMO Targets) as well as throughout the country to help ensure that students have the skills they need to be college and career ready. Thanks to the continuous support of students, parents, faculty, and staff, Scotland County Schools had many successes with the WorkKeys Assessment including, achieving 71.4% Percentage passing at Silver or higher in 2012-13, and 67% in 2013-14 as compared to (54.1% in 2011/12), and Scotland County Schools has had two students to earn the Platinum Career Readiness Certification within the last two years.
WorkKeys provides important information no matter what type of skilled or professional career a student plans to pursue after high school. They are awarded at four levels—Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum—based on the scores an individual achieves on three WorkKeys tests: Applied Mathematics, Locating Information, and Reading for Information.
Students are provided a free tutorial program to better prepare for the assessment located at http://lrcog-nc.wincshost.com/. For more information please visit the Scotland County Schools CTE Webpage or contact Ms. Goins at 910-277-4459 ext. 313 or Camille.firstname.lastname@example.org.
