The NCLab CAREER READINESS ASSESSMENT is a “learn-and-apply” hands-on assessment that provides you, the coach, with insight into your clients’ ability to learn and apply new knowledge. This assessment is not a questionnaire. It does not ask about or test any prior knowledge, and it does not include Math.

The only prerequisites are reading in English and basic keyboarding. Virtually anybody can take the assessment.

What is the theory and research that underpins the assessment?

The CAREER READINESS ASSESSMENT has been used at NCLab for many years to determine whether people have an aptitude to learn, adapt, and perform well in an automation-laden work environment. The results have been studied over time and have shown themselves to be very relevant.

What is being assessed in the CAREER READINESS ASSESSMENT?

The assessment determines an individual’s ability to read and understand written instructions, learn and absorb new information, apply that new information to solve simple problems, and it also measures an individual’s perseverance.  

What is the predictive validity of the assessment in future performance in training programs and in jobs that follow the training? 

An individual’s success in the CAREER READINESS ASSESSMENT is strongly positively correlated to the individual’s success in training programs and in 21st century work environments. 


The proprietary scoring for the CAREER READINESS ASSESSMENT includes numerous categories of both hard and soft skills measured by the assessment. A final result is then calculated using these individual scores. A high score indicates that clients will be successful in training programs of their choice and in whatever career path they choose to follow.
