News Alert - ACT Updating NCRC

News Alert – ACT Updating NCRC

ACT, Inc. announced they have updated and renamed the core ACT WorkKeys assessments which make up the National Career Readiness Certificate (NCRC). The updates include contemporary content and more engaging graphics. Called NCRC 2.0, Reading for Information will be called Workplace Documents; Applied Mathematics will be called Applied Math, and Locating Information will be calledGraphic Literacy, to more accurately describe the skills it is assessing. The current versions will sunset on October 1st, 2017; thereafter, all online study material and assessments will be on the new platform and reflect the updated assessments, the older version will no longer be available.

To prepare for NCRC 2.0, the NCRC Lab and all testing at the PCC Greenville Center will be suspended for two (2) weeks, from Sept-18 through Sept-30. We will resume NCRC operations the week of Oct-2 (Mon).
