What is the ASVAB Test?

ASVAB stands for Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery - a multiple-choice test developed by the Department of Defense and is used to evaluate your mental aptitude for enlistment in the United States Army. The ASVAB also decides which Military Occupational Specialties (MOS) you qualify for. Candidates can take the ASVAB in a computerized version at a Military Entrance Processing Station (MEPS) or in a paper version at various Military Entrance Test (MET) sites around the country or at high schools and colleges.

UNDERSTANDING THE ASVAB TEST AREAS

The ASVAB test is a combination of 9 subsections that are crafted to carefully measure a test taker's academic prowess and technical aptitude. All sections and what they cover are listed below:

  • General Science (16 questions, 8 minutes) - covers life science, earth and space science, and physical science
  • Arithmetic Reasoning (16 questions, 39 minutes) - tests your ability to solve basic arithmetic word problems
  • Word Knowledge (16 questions, 8 minutes) - tests your knowledge of the meaning of words through synonyms
  • Paragraph Comprehension (11 questions, 22 minutes) - tests your understanding of obtaining information from written material
  • Mathematics Knowledge (16 questions, 20 minutes) - covers mathematical concepts and applications
  • Electronics Information (16 questions, 8 minutes) - covers knowledge of electrical current, circuits, devices, and electronic systems
  • Auto and Shop Information (22 questions, 13 minutes) - contains automotive maintenance and repair, and wood and metal shop practices
  • Mechanical Comprehension (16 questions, 20 minutes) - covers the principles of mechanical devices, structural support and properties of materials
  • Assembling Objects (16 questions, 16 minutes) - test the ability with spatial relationships

ASVAB SCORES AND AFQT SCORES

As mentioned above, there are nine sections on the ASVAB that all calculate toward your total score. However, four of them have been considered more important and make up the Armed Forces Qualifications Test (AFQT) score. This score ranges from 0 to 100 and a minimum score is required to join in military service, although the minimum score differs branch by branch. Your scores in four critical areas: Arithmetic Reasoning, Word Knowledge, Paragraph Comprehension, and Mathematics Knowledge make up your Armed Forces Qualifying Test (AFQT) score.  The other five areas in the ASVAB are General Science, Electronics Information, Auto and Shop Information, Mechanical Comprehension, and Assembling Objects. Your scores in these 5 areas will determine how suitable you are for certain military occupational specialties and Enlistment Bonuses. A high score will increase your chances of joining the specialty/job and signing the bonus you want.   The U.S. Army also converts the ASVAB test scores into 10 other composite score areas (line scores) that determine what MOS you may qualify for:

  • Clerical (CL) – Paragraph Comprehension, Word Knowledge, Arithmetic Reasoning, and Mathematics Knowledge.
  • Combat (CO) - Paragraph Comprehension, Word Knowledge, Auto & Shop, and Mechanical Comprehension.
  • Electronics (EL) – Arithmetic Reasoning, General Science, Mathematics Knowledge, and Electronic Information.
  • Field Artillery (FA) - Mathematics Knowledge, Arithmetic Reasoning, and Mechanical Comprehension.
  • General Maintenance (GM) – Auto & Shop, General Science, Mathematics Knowledge, and Electronics Information.
  • General Technical (GT) - Paragraph Comprehension, Word Knowledge, and Arithmetic Reasoning (AR).
  • Mechanical Maintenance (MM) – Auto & Shop, Mechanical Comprehension, and Electronic Information.
  • Operators and Food (OF) - Word Knowledge, Paragraph Comprehension, Auto & Shop, and Mechanical Comprehension.
  • Surveillance and Communications (SC) - Word Knowledge, Paragraph Comprehension, Arithmetic Reasoning, Auto & Shop, and Mechanical Comprehension.
  • Skilled Technical (ST) - Word Knowledge, Paragraph Comprehension, General Science, Mechanical Comprehension, and Mathematics Knowledge.
