Lake Michigan College is regarded as the regional expert for WorkKeys, an innovative job profiling and testing program developed by ACT, the nationally recognized expert in educational assessments. Businesses use WorkKeys as a hiring and promotional tool and some Michigan paraprofessionals (teachers’ aides) are required to take the Reading for Information, Applied Mathematics and Writing assessments as part of the “No Child Left Behind” Act.
The National Career Readiness Certificate (NCRC) The NCRC is the cornerstone to a national system that documents core foundational skills that are essential to workplace success. Because it is based on WorkKeys, the certificate enables educators, employers, and economic developers to work collaboratively toward the common goal establishing a highly-skilled Michigan workforce that can compete in a global economy.
The three WorkKeys assessments that identify the skill levels for the certificate are Reading for Information, Applied Mathematics and Locating Information. For more information on the NCRC go to http://www.nationalcrcadvocates.org/.
