WorkKeys Curriculum© by ACT®
The staff in Professional Services can set you up with a WorkKeys Curriculum© account (also through ACT®), so that you can study for any WorkKeys© tests on any computer with Internet access. You can test first and determine if there are certain areas in which you would like to improve your skills. Then, you can then study just those areas where you feel you are weakest and come back in to retest just those.
