Abstract:

The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery ASVAB is a set of ten tests administered by the Department of Defense DoD to all applicants for enlistment in the United States Armed Services, as part of the Enlistment Testing Program, and also administered in high schools as a component of the Student Testing Program. The tests included in ASVAB are listed in Table I, which also shows the length of each test in items and minutes and the means and standard deviations of the number-correct scores for the 1980 Youth Population Department of Defense, 1982. The battery yields scores for each of the ten tests, plus an eleventh composite score, Verbal VE, which is the sum of scores on two tests, Word Knowledge WK and Paragraph Comprehension PC. Various other combinations of the test scores form composites that are used by DoD and the Services for determining overall qualification for enlistment and eligibility for entry into specific occupational specialties.
