ASVAB

Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB)

 

Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB)

The ASVAB was originally designed to predict future academic and occupational success in

military occupations. However it has now become the most widely used multiple-aptitude test

battery in the world. The ASVAB is offered in January every year and it is FREE to our

students. The YCHS Counseling Department highly recommends every 10th, 11th, and 12th grader

to take the ASVAB. Taking this test DOES NOT obligate a student to serve in the armed forces.

However, if a student plans on serving in any branch of the armed services, they must take the

ASVAB.

The 8 ASVAB test areas are:

General Science

A 25-item test measuring knowledge of life science, earth and space science, and

physical science

Arithmetic Reasoning

A 30-item test measuring ability to solve basic arithmetic word problems

Word Knowledge

A 35-item test measuring ability to understand the meaning of words through synonyms

Paragraph Comprehension

A 15-item test measuring ability to obtain information from written material

Mathematics Knowledge

A 25-item test measuring knowledge of mathematical concepts and applications

Electronics Information

A 20-item test measuring knowledge of electrical current, circuits, devices, and electronic

systems

Auto and Shop Information

and metal shop practices

support, and properties of materials
