Program Overview


  1. SCORES – The proctor should be able to provide scores within about 15 minutes after you finish your last test. However it can take up to 72 hours depending on how many other people are testing simultaneously nationwide, along with other processing factors. If you are not able to get your scores before you leave the testing center, please call WorkKeys Customer Service directly at 1-800-967-5539.
  2. CERTIFICATE – Athens Technical College only provides scores, not certificates. To get your certificate, click here:


WorkKeys assessments vary in the kinds of skills they measure. Whether taking just one assessment or a series of them, targeted preparation helps individuals, educators, and test administrators know what to expect on test day. There are several ways to prepare and improve your scores.

Applied Math

Required for the NCRC

The Applied Math assessment measures critical thinking, mathematical reasoning, and problem solving techniques for situations that actually occur in today’s workplace. While individuals may use calculators and conversion tables to help with the problems on the assessment, math skills are still needed to think them through.

Graphic Literacy

Required for the NCRC

Workplace graphics come in a variety of formats, but all communicate a level of information. From charts to graphs, diagrams to floor plans, identifying what information is being presented and understanding how to use it are critical to success. The Graphic Literacy assessment measures the skill needed to locate, synthesize, and use information from workplace graphics.

Workplace Documents

Required for the NCRC

Employees need to be able to understand written text to do a job. The Workplace Documents assessment measures the skills people use when they read and use written text such as memos, letters, directions, signs, notices, bulletins, policies, and regulations on the job.
