From the ASVAB website:
What is the asvab?
The Department of Defense introduced the ASVAB (which stands for Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery) in 1968. It was originally designed to predict future academic and occupational success in military occupations. However, extensive research indicates the ASVAB assesses academic ability and predicts success in a wide variety of occupations.
The ASVAB CEP is used for career exploration and is given to high school and early post-secondary students. An enlistment version of the ASVAB is given primarily at Military Entrance Processing Stations (MEPS), and is used for enlistment purposes only.
Why should i take it?
Get to know yourself better.
Knowing who you are and what you are passionate about can make all the difference in your success (both academic and occupational).Before you make decisions about what to do after high school, it is important that you spend time thinking about your interests, values, talents, and abilities.Grades and test scores are only part of the picture. When making career plans, you should have a good understanding of what you do well, what you like to do, what your goals are, and what kind of lifestyle you prefer.
Identifying your skills and abilities can help you find occupations in which you are likely to be successful.
