ASVAB Career Exploration ProgramThe ASVAB test covers eight areas including science, word knowledge, mathematics, and mechanical comprehension. It assesses a student's ability to learn new skills and is a predictor of success in training and education programs. It is an optional test that is offered to sophomores, juniors, and seniors; however, it is usually administered to juniors.
This is not a military test and is administered by civilian Education Services Specialists who have no recruiting function. However, students who are planning on a military career must take the ASVAB in order to enter the armed forces.
