ASVAB

What is the ASVAB

Earn Your Graduation Demonstration with ASVAB! 

The ASVAB Test offered at Brighton High School will meet the Graduation Demonstration, per the Colorado Department of Education (CDE) with minimum score of 31:

 Graduation Guidelines - ASVAB 

WHAT IS THE ASVAB?

If you’re serious about joining the military, then it’s time also to get serious about taking the ASVAB.  The ASVAB is a timed, multi-aptitude test, which is given at more than 14,000 schools and Military Entrance Processing Stations (MEPS) nationwide and is developed and maintained by the Defense Department (DoD). The ASVAB helps the DoD not just determine whether you are a good fit to join the service, but also which service branch you might be best for and even what military jobs you can hold after you finish basic training or boot camp. The better your ASVAB score, the broader your options. 

The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery is the most widely used multiple-aptitude test battery in the world. The ASVAB measures your strengths, weaknesses, and potential for future success in four domains: verbal, math, science and technical, and spatial.

The ASVAB includes tests in 10 areas: general science (GS), arithmetic reasoning (AR), word knowledge (WK), paragraph comprehension (PC), mathematics knowledge (MK), electronics information (EI), auto information (AI), shop information (SI), mechanical comprehension (MC) and assembling objects (AO). It provides career information for various civilian and military occupations and is an indicator for success in future endeavors, such as college, vocational school or a military career.

 

HOW IMPORTANT IS THE ASVAB?

Your scores in four critical areas -- Arithmetic Reasoning, Word Knowledge, Paragraph Comprehension, and Mathematics Knowledge -- count towards your Armed Forces Qualifying Test (AFQT) score.  The AFQT score determines whether you are qualified to enlist in the US Military.  Your scores in the other areas of the ASVAB will determine how qualified you are for certain military occupational specialties and Enlistment Bonuses.  A high score will improve your chances of getting the specialty/job and signing bonus you want.

 

WHAT SCORE IS REQUIRED?


Below is some information about reading an ASVAB score and understanding what it means; if you have any questions about how to interpret your scores, please see your counselor.
