The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) program provides tools, including the test battery and interest inventory, developed by the Department of Defense to help high school and post-secondary students across the nation learn more about career exploration and planning.
Results of the aptitude test and the interest inventory enable students to evaluate their skills, estimate performance in academic and vocational endeavors, and identify potentially satisfying careers. These results are integrated with work values to help students identify and prioritize possible career choices. Students are encouraged to consider their own work-related values and other important personal preferences as they explore the world of work and learn career exploration skills that will benefit them throughout their work lives.
Students can take the ASVAB multiple times to improve their score.
The test will begin promptly at 8:10am.
Results of the test will be INTERPRETED on March 19 at 8:15 am in the DHS Lecture Hall

The test itself takes three hours to complete. Students are responsible for making up any assignments that they miss.
Students should understand by participating in the ASVAB Career Exploration Program (CEP), they are under no obligation to speak with a recruiter or enlist in the Armed Forces. Once the school receives the results, an ASVAB CEP program representative will interpret the results and help students understand how their skills, interests, and values will assist them as they plan for college and the future in the world of work.
