National Career Readiness Certificate (WIN Testing)
ACT's National Career Readiness Certificate (NCRC) is a portable credential that demonstrates achievement and a certain level of workplace employability skills in Applied Mathematics, Locating Information, and Reading for Information.
Individuals can earn the NCRC by taking three WIN assessments:
Applied Mathematics - Applying mathematical reasoning and problem solving to work-related problems from making change to measuring the areas of a room
Locating Information - Using graphics like charts, graphs and tables to find information
Reading for Information - Reading and using written texts like letters, directions, signs, notices, policies and regulations in a job
WIN assessments measure "real world" skills that employers believe are critical to job success. Test questions are based on situations in the everyday work world. This assessment helps employers select, hire, train, develop, and retain a high-performance workforce.
Students receive a score of Level 3 through Level 7 on each assessment.
