            TOPEKA — Kansas juniors will be able to take the ACT test and Work Keys assessment for free during the 2018-2019 school year, the Kansas State Department of Education announced    Tuesday, Aug. 7.


            Kansas joins 18 other state education agencies currently providing the ACT for students. 

            The ACT test, introduced in 1959, gauges a student’s readiness for success in the first year of     college. The test provides standardized data on student achievement and readiness. The no-cost        ACT test will be offered statewide Wednesday, Feb. 20, 2019.


            The ACT Work Keys assessments have been used for more than two decades to measure

            essential workplace skills and help people build career pathways. Work Keys measures

            foundational skills, including both hard and soft skills. Every junior in Kansas will have the

            opportunity to earn an ACT Work Keys National Career Readiness Certificate. There are three

            assessments required to qualify for the certificate, ACT Work Keys applied math; ACT Work Keys

            workplace documents; and ACT Work Keys graphic literacy. The free Work Keys assessment will

            be administered statewide Thursday, Feb. 21, 2019.


            KSDE recommends that all juniors –as well as those seniors who didn’t have an opportunity to

            take the assessments during the 2017-2018 school year – take both assessments.

            KSDE and ACT have signed a contract to administer at no charge to the student or district both    the ACT and Work Keys to all juniors and any senior who has not had the opportunity to complete        the assessments. ACT and Work Keys are not required assessments. A student may complete          both or just one.
