Effective Monday, July 2, 2018 South Carolina transitioned to using WIN Learning’s Ready to Work assessments as the state-sponsored career readiness training, assessment and credentialing program.
South Carolina will use three state-branded South Carolina Ready to Work Assessments (Applied Mathematics, Reading for Information and Locating Information) to measure foundational career readiness and qualify program participants for the new state-sponsored South Carolina Ready to Work Credential.
In addition, the WIN Learning solution includes an Essential Soft Skills assessment that measures National employability skills that are in-demand by South Carolina employers, including Communicating Effectively, Conveying Professionalism, Promoting Teamwork and Collaboration, and Thinking Critically and Problem Solving.
This robust tool will also be available through the education and workforce system to job seekers and employers.
The National Career Readiness Certificate includes the following assessments:
|Applied Mathematics||This assessment measures skills people use when they apply mathematical reasoning, critical thinking, and problem-solving techniques to work-related problems. While examinees may use a calculator and formula sheet to help with the problems, they still need to use math skills to think them through.|
|Locating Information||This assessment measures skills people use when they work with workplace graphics such as charts, graphs, maps, tables, forms, flowcharts, diagrams, floor plans, and instrument gauges. Examinees are asked to find information in a graphic or insert information into a graphic as well as compare, summarize, ad analyze information found in related graphics.|
|Reading for Information||This assessment measures skills people use when they read and use written text in order to do a job. The written texts include memos, letters, directions, signs, notices, bulletins, policies, and regulations.|
Your WIN® scores will determine what level certificate you are eligible to earn. (You must complete all 3 tests to earn a certificate):
|BRONZE||Minimum score of 3|
|SILVER||Minimum score of 4|
|GOLD||Minimum score of 5|
|PLATINUM||Minimum score of 6|
