Workplace Readiness Assessment

Workplace Readiness Assessment (WRA) - Information updated 9/8/20



Mrs. Bafus is the test coordinator and can be contacted at bafusr@msd281.org.  Her office is in the Career Center (room 125A).



When:  Mrs. Bafus will coordinate with students in January to take the exam.  

Who is required to take the WRA?:  All senior students who have enrolled or have completed at least their second Career and Technical Education (CTE) course (grades 9-12) are required to take the WRA.

What is the WRA? The WRA measures a student’s understanding of the career readiness standards in personal, professional, and technical knowledge and skills. The standards are designed to ensure students graduate from high school prepared with skills employers prioritize as the most important.

What is the benefit to students? Upon passing the WRA with a 75% or greater score, students will receive a certification called the National Workplace Readiness Skills Certification that documents your mastery of the Industry Certified Workplace Readiness Skills.

How does the State use this data?
