Changes to WorkReady Assessment Requirement

WorkReady has four distinct outcome measures, one of which has been 8th grade level proficiency in reading and math.

Recently the WorkReady Steering Committee voted to change this requirement and focus on assessment Skill Level Descriptors rather than grade levels. The Skill Level Descriptor language is more relevant to employers as it details what an individual is able to do. This change makes the WorkReady credential even more relevant as an indicator of workplace success. .
