The Counseling Office would like to let you know about the opportunity for your 11th and 12th Grade student to take the ASVAB Career Exploration test at Timpview High School on Tuesday, April 16th at 12:30 P.M.

The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (https://www.asvabprogram.com/) covers ten areas, and it assesses a student’s current abilities and strengths. It also is a predictor of students’ success in education and training programs, and a career exploration tool that is used in combination with the students’ Holland Code, to determine careers that will be associated with the interest of the students. So overall, the test measures their current strengths (based upon the 10 areas) and can show careers that match their personality type, but then it combines the two to show what careers match their strengths and their personality!

The 10 areas tested on the ASVAB include: general science, arithmetic reasoning, word knowledge, paragraph comprehension, mathematics knowledge, electronics information, auto information, shop information, mechanical comprehension, and assembling objects.

Every 11th and 12th Grade student is encouraged to take the ASVAB Career Exploration test, even those students not interested in the military. The ASVAB Career Exploration test is designed for students who are interested in all post-secondary paths. A class of 2018 Timpview graduate, who currently attends Utah State University, said this about their experience with the test: “The ASVAB opened my eyes up to career opportunities that I would not have realized on my own. It also help validate that what I was interested in, was a good career choice for me to go into.” In addition, Timpview High School has selected a reporting option for the ASVAB in which the results are given to your students only and not the armed services. 

This testing date is for 11th and 12th grade students only. In order to participate, a permission slip is required. The counselors will need the permission slip back by Monday, April 15th! If you have any questions, please contact the Counseling Office!
