The School Counseling Center at Mascenic Regional High School hosted the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) test for any interested students. Nineteen students chose to sit for the test.
The most widely used aptitude test in the world, the ASVAB measures developed abilities and helps predict future academic and occupational success. It is administered annually to more than one million military applicants, high school students, and post-secondary students.
The ASVAB covers four critical areas: Arithmetic Reasoning, Word Knowledge, Paragraph Comprehension and Mathematics Knowledge. The ASVAB Career Exploration Program provides the opportunity to participate in a world-class comprehensive career exploration and planning program that helps students identify the careers best suited to them.
Joe Bialy, from the Department of Defense, helped to proctor the test in December and he returned last week to interpret the result for our students.
