Pre-existing prior to school year 1973-74 reference norms for the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery ASVAB were predicated upon a representative sample of 3050 examinees, processed through Armed Forces Examining and Entrance Stations AFEES and stratified on the Armed Forces Qualification Test to produce a mobilization sample. The data were collected at 11 AFEES throughout the country to provide geographic sampling and were replicated in terms of subtest means and standard deviations in the 1973-74 edition of the ASVAB high school counselors manual as a normative referant. The present ASVAB reference data are based upon actual results of testing over 800,000 high school students during school year 1972-73. As such, the tabular summaries do not constitute bona fide ASVAB norms, representative of any national mobilization population, but do characterize actual test performance of students--stratified by high school grade and sex--tested during school year 1972-73.
