Scoring

Several composite scores are formed from different combinations of ASVAB test scores. Three composites, or Career Exploration Scores, are provided specifically to help students engage in the career exploration process. These scores help students to get a good sense of their verbal, math, and science and technical skills compared to other students in the same grade. ASVAB results are reported to students and counselors on the ASVAB Summary Results sheet. This report shows grade-specific standard scores and score bands for all eight tests and three Career Exploration Scores. It also provides students with percentile-based interpretations of those scores. The ASVAB Summary Results provides students with appropriate explanations of the scores, as well as suggestions for their use.

Another composite, the Military Careers Score, allows students to compare their skills and abilities with the skills and abilities of job incumbents in various military careers.

Finally, students receive a Military Entrance Score. This score, also called the Armed Forces Qualification Test (AFQT) score, is the score that determines whether a student has scored high enough to meet the entrance requirements for military service.
