ACT WorkKeys Individuals are entering the workforce without the skills employers need. WorkKeys is a first step toward closing skills gaps and improving workforce quality. WorkKeys assessments are based on situations in the everyday working world and measure “hard” and “soft” skills. The test measures foundational skills relevant to the job employers are seeking to fill. It can serve as a validated reference for both current skill levels and whether a candidate can effectively learn on the job, which is not always apparent through education levels and resume review.
