The WIN Ready to Work test, which is administered in the spring to all high school juniors, is a workforce education and development tool comprised of three proctored assessments--Applied Mathematics, Reading for Information, and Locating Information--that essentially leads to a work-ready credential. The exam brings employers, learners/job-seekers, and education/workforce partners together in building a skilled workforce, while keeping and attracting businesses with higher-wage jobs and national economic growth, as stated by the WIN website www.winlearning.com Last spring, 81 percent of the Lexington Three students who took the WIN test earned a work-ready certificate.
The Platinum Certificate is the highest level of certification that a student can earn on the WIN assessment. It is estimated that only 1,275 students of the 51,000 test takers across South Carolina earned this certificate in 2018.
