    ASVAB (Career Assessment test)

    The ASVAB (Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery) career assessment test is provided at least once a year at SHS, at no charge to students. The duration of the test will last for 1-3 hours, depending on the student. For students that are considering college or tech school, or not planning on continued education after high school, this test can be helpful. Results may spur the students into a specific program of study at an institution or guide them into a career pathway. The test is divided into sections, much like the ACT/SAT. The sections are divided into Math, English and Vocational. The results will be interpreted with ASVAB Career Exploration Program personnel at SHS a few weeks after the test. For students considering a military career, this test is also used as an assessment tool for job placement. Military personnel are involved in administering this test.
