How can the basic skills assessment requirement be completed online?

Instead of in-person testing, it is possible to use online practice assessments available on OhioMeansJobs.com. Please collaborate with your local workforce area on which assessments are acceptable. One option available on OhioMeansJobs.com is the WorkKeys assessments. Please note that standardized assessments individuals have taken within the last six months can meet this requirement without the need for a new assessment.

This practice assessment provides an estimated score. If the score is less than 3 (3 is a careerready score), the individual could be tested more thoroughly after travel restrictions end to determine the educational functioning level (EFL). EFL assessments are necessary to show a skill gain for anyone who is basic skills deficient (for more details, see the CCMEP performance desk aid). For details on accessing the WorkKeys assessment, please see the OMJ Resources Guide.
