ASVAB – Career Exploration Program Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery

The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery is one tool that can help you assess your strengths in areas important to the career world. The ASVAB measures developed abilities and predicts what a person may accomplish with further training or education. It also provides measures of general learning ability that are useful for predicting performance in academic areas. Scores from the tests are useful in both civilian and military career counseling.

The ASVAB is a battery of ten short tests that cover the areas of general science, arithmetic reasoning, word knowledge, paragraph comprehension, numerical operations, coding speed, auto and shop information, mechanical comprehension, and electronics information. The results of the ten tests are then combined to give three academic scores that can help identify career areas in which you might be interested.
