ASVAB

The ASVAB measures strengths and potential for future success.  You do not “pass” or “fail”.  the results represent how well you have developed your skills in addition to your potential for training.  Your results provide a measure of your skills and abilities with different scores:

  •  Career Exploration Scores-The three Career Exploration Scores are verbal, math, and science/technical skills.  Each of these scores is made up of a combination of some of the individual ASVAB tests.
  • ASVAB Tests-You receive a score for each subtest that makes up the ASVAB.
  • Military Entrance Score/Armed Forces Qualification Test (AFQT)-Participation in the ASVAB CEP does not obligate you to talk with military recruiters or consider a military career.  If you are interested in joining the Military it is best to discuss this score with a recruiter.  Learn more at www.careersinthemilitary.com.
