ASVAB - Your decision to enter college, technical school, vocational school, military service or the work world is a very important one.  To help you decide on a college major, the type of technical training you will need, or the job that will best suit you, you are encouraged to consider taking the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery.  The ASVAB is a multi-aptitude test battery.  It helps you identify your different skills and competencies.  It measures potential to learn and perform in certain career areas.  There is no cost to the student. 

 

Taking the ASVAB does not commit you to join the military.  It is a timed multi-aptitude test, which is given nationwide and is developed and maintained by the Department of Defense.

It consists of eight short individual tests covering General Science, Math Reasoning, Word Knowledge, Paragraph Comprehension, Math Knowledge, Electronics Information, Auto and Shop Information and Mechanical Comprehension.  Not only do you receive scores on each of these individual tests, you also receive career exploration scores.  These scores are the results of individual tests combined to yield three career exploration scores: Verbal Skills, Math Skills, and Science and Technical Skills.  

The ASVAB is divided into  eight individual subtests:
