ASvab

The ASVAB test is an interest inventory and an excercise designed to help students explore the world of work. Results of the aptitude test and the interest inventory enable students to evaulate their skills, estimate performace in academic and vocational endeavors and identify potentially satisfying careers. It gives students a good measure of how well they have developed their academic and occupational skills at school, home, and in the community. Students will be provided with their scores on a report called the ASVAB summary results. Based on the results of the eight ASVAB test areas, students will recieve three career exploration scores that are provided specifically to help each student research careers in those areas. Student scores will help them get a better understanding of their verbal, math, science, and technical skills compared to other students in the same grade. The ASVAB was given on September 26th, during the school day to ALL grade 11 students.
