Schedule a practice test appointment

  1. Schedule an appointment to take the KeyTrain practice test. See available locations. The WorkKeys-MnDOT Test will be referred to as the National Career Readiness Certificate (NCRC).
  2. Schedule a time to take the 55-minute math assessment. If you pass, you may immediately take the 55-minute reading assessment. You will not be allowed to take the reading assessment until you have passed the math assessment.

To qualify for a position, you must pass both tests.  See the table below which lists the different job classes and qualifying scores. You can re-test up to three times per month as appointments are available.

Prepare for the WorkKeys-MnDOT test

You are encouraged to spend some time preparing for these computerized tests. We recommend you use practice tests to build your skills.  As you progress through the levels you increase your chances of passing future tests. Also, try some other resources such as practice tests and preparation courses.

Test levels range from Level 3 to Level 7.

Test Scores
