We are happy to announce that ASVAB testing is available again this year for homeschool families during the 2021 INCH Expo on Thursday, July 15, at Mount Hope Church:
- ASVAB Career Exploration Program (Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery) – FREE on Thursday, 7/15, 3:00-6:00pm, with the follow-up to go over results at 7:00pm that same evening.
The test will be given at Mount Hope Church, in a class room adjacent to the Jumpstart Your Future Fair..
The test will be offered: Thursday, July 15, 3:00-6:00pm
- NOTE: This year the on-site follow-up discussion of the test results will also take place on site after a break for scoring and dinner. Students and parents can re-convene in the same room at 7:00pm to receive scores and an explanation of how to access a multitude of online resources which will help with interpretation of the results and assist in career planning.
The ASVAB is a FREE career planning and exploration program that combines a multiple-aptitude test with an interest self-assessment and a wide range of career exploration tools. It is administered annually to more than one million high school and post-secondary students, and military applicants.
The ASVAB Career Exploration Program includes eight individual tests covering verbal and math skills, mechanical knowledge, electronics, etc. It also provides three Career Exploration Scores for Verbal Skills, Math Skills, and Science and Technical Skills. These three scores serve as one of several pieces of information about your teen that can aid in the exploration of a wide variety of educational and career options. The ASVAB is offered at no cost and no obligation to high school students.
Students can explore occupations and consider whether their skills (as measured by the three Career Exploration Scores), and interests as measured by the FYI), are comparable to the demands of occupations that appeal to them. Research has shown that students who participate in the ASVAB Program experience less career indecision, enjoy greater confidence in making career decisions, and consider more thoughtfully their options than do students who do not participate in the ASVAB Program.
A junior or senior can also use their scores from the ASVAB to enlist in the military after graduation. The scores are good for two years. However, no one is under any obligation to the military as a result of taking the ASVAB. Many students take the ASVAB for career exploration and have no interest in enlisting in the military.
