Workkeys was developed by ACT, which is a leader in education assessments and workforce development services. Workkeys links workforce and education partners to assist in developing a common language for job skill requirements to develop employees, thus creating a better workforce. Assessments measure abilities in communication, problem solving, interpersonal skills and personal skills. A total of 12 assessments can be completed. The top three assessments used are reading, writing and locating information, which is in the Communication and problem solving categories. However, more companies are adding to these most popular assessments due to the job descriptions and requirements. Others that are used most include technology and observation.
Workkeys partner (licensed) sites include:
- State and local agencies
- Community Colleges
- Vocational and Adult Education Centers
- Career Counseling Centers

The Turning Point staff works in partnership with the 4 Community Colleges to provide Workkeys & CRCs to individuals through specially funded initiatives. The assessments are not provided through the Administrative office, but can be coordinated with certified site administrators at approved locations if there is interest.
