military or other careers. Over 90% of students who take the ASVAB are
not going into the military so it is not just a military test. There is
a Career Evaluation Program (CEP) as part of the test that may help
students researching careers.
This test if free of charge and the school counselor has selected that recruiters not be notified of students' scores so families will not feel pressured by recruiters.
