ASVAB

​ABOUT

  • The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) test is designed to measure aptitudes in four domains: Verbal, Math, Science/Technical, and Spatial. 

  • It has 10 sections. Four sections of which are comparable to both the SAT and ACT that cover language and math skills and one section is comparable to the ACT that covers science. The five additional ASVAB sections cover vocational areas like electronics information, automotive information, shop information, mechanical comprehension and assembling objects. ​​​​

    • ​Disclaimer:  "A high score does not guarantee success, and a low score does not guarantee failure, in a future educational program or occupation.  For example, if you have never worked with shop equipment or cars, you may not be familiar with the terms and concepts assessed by the Auto and Shop Information test.  Taking a course or obtaining a part-time job in this area would increase your knowledge and improve your score if you were to take it again."
