Attention Juniors and Seniors:
The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) is one of the most widely used, multiple-aptitude tests in the world, developed and maintained by the Department of Defense. It measures a young adult’s strengths, weaknesses, and potential for future success.
The student ASVAB, referred to as the ASVAB Career Exploration Program (ASVAB CEP), is used for career exploration and is given in high schools and community colleges.
The ASVAB Career Exploration Program (CEP), takes approximately three hours, covers eight subjects and is composed of 200 questions. The ASVAB CEP is currently a pen and paper test. If it is offered by their school, high school students can take the ASVAB CEP test in grades 11 and 12. They can only take it at the high school they attend, unless special arrangements are made.
The ASVAB CEP also incorporates an interest self-assessment which can help young adults identify potential careers. If the self-assessment is completed online, students also have access to the OCCU-Find, which outlines over 1000 occupations for students to explore based on their interest codes.
ASVAB CEP test results are sent to student’s schools so they can explore career options with counselors. The scores show how well the student did on each subject, and how they compare with others who took the test. There are three composite scores in Verbal, Math, and Science and Technical skills, and the Armed Forces Qualification Test (AFQT) score is also reported.
The AFQT is the only score reported in both the ASVAB CEP and the enlistment ASVAB. If a student who participates in the ASVAB CEP wants to enlist in the Military, the AFQT score is the score military recruiters will use.
