Following is guidance to providers of Ohio’s Adult Diploma Program concerning the change of required WorkKeys® scores for students completing an industry-recognized credential for the 2020 fiscal year.
Change of Required Scores
Earning an industry-recognized credential is one of three pathways to earn a high school diploma. The Ohio State Board of Education approved programs requires students to achieve a workforce readiness score on the WorkKeys® assessment.
The WorkKeys® assessment has three sections: Applied Math, Graphic Literacy, and Workplace Documents. Students in the Classes of 2018 and 2019 must earn a total of 13 points across the three WorkKeys® sections; students in the Class of 2020 and beyond must earn a total of 14 points. Students must also earn at least three points on each section of the test.
Impact for New and Continuing Students
Students who initiated the process of enrollment prior to July 1, 2019 would be required to achieve a minimum composite score of 13 across the three test areas. For those students who began the enrollment process following July 1, 2019 must now attain a composite score of 14 points.
