Welcome!

Thank you for showing an interest in the NCLab Career Readiness Assessment. We’re excited to have you experience it. It helps people determine whether they are well suited to succeed in automation-laden industries such as Manufacturing, Gaming, Technology, Banking, Supply-Chain, Transportation, Healthcare, and Logistics.

If you take the assessment and complete it, you will be provided a certificate of completion and you can be confident that you’ll be successful in any training and workplace activity that you undertake. 

What is the NCLab CAREER READINESS ASSESSMENT?

The NCLab CAREER READINESS ASSESSMENT is a “learn-and-apply” hands-on assessment. It is not a questionnaire. It does not ask about or test your 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 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 the new information to solve simple problems, and it also measures an individual’s perseverance.  

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 the predictive validity of the assessment in future performance in training programs and in automation-laden jobs? 

An individual’s success in the CAREER READINESS ASSESSMENT is strongly positively correlated to the individual’s success in both training programs and working in a 21st century automation-laden work environment. 

How is the CAREER READINESS ASSESSMENT scored?

The proprietary scoring for the CAREER READINESS ASSESSMENT includes numerous categories which cover the hard and soft skills measured by the assessment. A final result is then calculated using these individual scores. A high score indicates that you will be successful in whatever career path you choose to follow.

How long does the assessment take?

This assessment takes 1 to 3 hours to complete and is best done in one session.
