ASVAB (Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery)
The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) is a multi-aptitude test battery. It consists of 10 short individual tests covering World Knowledge, Paragraph Comprehension, Arithmetic Reasoning, Mathematics Knowledge, General Science, Auto and Shop Information, Numerical Operations, and Coding Speed. Not only do you receive scores on each of the individual tests, you also receive composite scores. Composite scores are the results of several individual tests combined to yield three academic scores: Verbal, Math and Academic Ability.
Who takes the ASVAB?
The test is offered to any junior or senior who is considering a military career, however, the test is also an excellent career interest inventory for all students.
When is the ASVAB offered?
The ASVAB is offered September and April of every school year. Specific dates and registration times will be announced in the monthly parent newsletter.
If there are any questions about the ASVAB testing program, please contact Mr. Ryan Hulmes in the Parkland High School Counseling Office.
