ACT WorkKeys® Exams for Teacher Assistants

The WorkKeys® Exams for Teacher Assistants provides a valid way to boost elementary education in the United States, in accordance with the No Child Left Behind Act (Sec. 1119, Part A, and Subpart 1). Based on ACT's WorkKeys system, the exams enable paraprofessional teacher assistants in Title I-funded schools to demonstrate their proficiency in three content areas—reading, writing, and mathematics. 
Several area school districts have selected the WorkKeys assessments for new instructional paraprofessionals.  Lamar Institute of Technology offers WorkKeys exams in the three content areas of business writing and mathematics.
