The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery is a test that measures potential for success both in and out of the military.
A multiple-choice test, it can be taken by high school students or by anyone interested in a military career.
There are 10 key ASVAB test areas:
• Word Knowledge (WK)
• Arithmetic Reasoning (AR)
Mechanical Comprehension (MC)
•Shop Information (SI)
•Automotive Information (AI)
•Electronics Information (EI)
•Mathematics Knowledge (MK)
•General Science (GS)
•Paragraph Comprehension (PC)
•Assembling Objects (AO)
•Verbal Expression (VE)
Armed Forces Qualification Test is a section of the ASVAB that tests qualifications to enter the armed forces. The required AFQT score varies according to each military service:
• Army: 31
• Navy: 35
• Marines: 31
• Air Force: 36
• Coast Guard: 45
The various branches adjust the required scores from time to time and may do so without notice. Also, recruitment requires a higher score for someone with a GED than for someone with a high school diploma.
The ASVAB comes in three forms:
Using the computer adaptive test model, the test subject goes through a battery of questions in 90 minutes. As the test-taker answers a given question correctly, the subsequent question offered becomes more difficult. The opposite also occurs, as incorrect answers lead to easier questions. Once completed, an answer cannot be changed.

The CAT is only for enlistment purposes. Potential recruits must take the test at a Military Entrance Processing Station.
The MET-Site ASVAB
The MET-site ASVAB is a paper-based exam. Used entirely for recruiting purposes, a recruiter authorizes each individual for testing.
After the testing, the subject receives the unverified test scores to return to the recruiter. The recruiter later provides the official score once it is available.
The Student ASVAB
The Student ASVAB is a tool for exploring overall career potential, and students can take it in high school, vocational school, or college. Students can consult the results when considering different occupations and college majors.
As one would expect, the AFQT score is included with the Student ASVAB, and it can be used should a student decide to enlist in the armed services.
The Department of Defense now promotes the ASVAB as an assessment tool that all students can use for career exploration in both civilian and military occupations.
