What is the ATI TEAS?

The ATI TEAS (Test of Essential Academic Skills) is designed to specifically assess a student’s preparedness to enter the health science field. Most likely, you’ve been asked to take the TEAS as part of your basic admissions requirements for your nursing or allied health program. That’s because studies show a consistent link between a student’s performance on the TEAS and future academic success.

The ATI TEAS exam consists of 170 questions, 20 of which are unscored pretest items. Questions are designed to test the basic academic skills you will need to perform in class in the areas of:

  • Reading
  • Math
  • Science
  • English
  • Language Usage

ACT WorkKeys® assessments are the cornerstone of ACT workforce solutions. The assessments measure foundational skills required for success in the workplace, and help measure the workplace skills that can affect job performance. WorkKeys assessments are:

Relevant—WorkKeys® assessments are developed to solve actual workplace problems. Unlike other assessments, they don’t simply give an indication of reading and writing competency. Instead, they measure a range of hard and soft skills relevant to any occupation, at any level, and across industries.

Recognized—Successful completion of WorkKeys core assessments can lead to earning an ACT WorkKeys® National Career Readiness Certificate™ (ACT WorkKeys NCRC®)—a credential that verifies the skills found to be most essential across industries and occupations. Tens of thousands of employers recognize the value of the NCRC, and many recommend the credential to candidates.

Each assessment offers varying levels of difficulty. The levels build on each other, incorporating the skills assessed at the previous levels. For example, at Level 5, individuals need the skills from Levels 3, 4, and 5. The complexity increases as the quantity and/or density of the information increases.

Assessments are web-based and most take one hour. They are offered in both English and Spanish.
