ASVAB (Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery)


The ASVAB is scheduled for October 26, 2017

 

Monterey Trail High School offers the ASVAB twice each school year, usually in October and March. Please see the Career Center Team if you would like to know this year’s test dates, sign up for the ASVAB, or would like to ask additional questions.

The ASVAB Career Exploration Program is one of the most widely used, multiple-aptitude tests in the world. It is a FREE comprehensive career planning program designed to help students identify and explore potentially satisfying occupations and develop effective strategies to realize career goals.

More than half of all high schools nationwide administer the ASVAB test to students in grades 10, 11 and 12 (sophomores cannot use their scores for enlistment eligibility). The test is developed and maintained by the Department of Defense. Students may also take the test at another school or through a recruiter and may retake the test at any time.

Although the ASVAB is required for all students planning to join the military, taking the ASVAB does NOT commit a student to the military.

The ASVAB includes a multiple-aptitude test battery, an interest inventory, and various career planning tools. The test itself consists of the following eight individual tests:

  • General Science
  • Arithmetic Reasoning
  • Word Knowledge
  • Paragraph Comprehension
  • Mathematics Knowledge
  • Electronics Information
  • Auto and Shop Information
  • Mechanical Comprehension

More information about the ASVAB can be found at www.asvabprogram.com.

 

The access code is 883AW
