ASVAB (Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery)
ASVAB is a comprehensive test that traditionally helps determine students’ eligibility for careers in the military; however, the assessment is an option for students even if they don’t plan to enlist in the military. ASVAB tests arithmetic reasoning, word knowledge, paragraph comprehension and mathematics knowledge.
To count the ASVAB toward the DPS career ready competency demonstration, students must complete the assessment in a manner that meets eligibility for military enlistment. In practice, this means that a student must be 17 years old, complete the ASVAB in English, and score a composite score of 31 or higher.
This assessment is free and may be administered to a student multiple times.
