Cuanto más larga sea la respuesta, mejores serán las posibilidades de que es la respuesta correcta. Los fabricantes de las pruebas tienen que conseguir todos esos calificativos en allí para asegurarse de que es la respuesta correcta y no se puede encontrar un ejemplo a contradecirla. Si ves frases como en muchos casos o frecuentemente, que suele ser un indicio de que los fabricantes de prueba están tratando de hacer que la respuesta “más correcta”.


The scores from the Word Knowledge, Arithmetic Reasoning, Mathematics Knowledge, and Paragraph Comprehension are combined together and known as the Armed Forces Qualification Test (AFQT). Your AFQT scores represent a percentile between 1 and 99 and measure your ranking compared to scores from other 18 to 23 year olds. If you score a 70 on your AFQT, this implies that you scored better than 70% of test takers. Your scores on the other six ASVAB tests will help identify which jobs may be appropriate for you in the military.
The recruiters have a limit that they can allow in as well as a quota they strive to meet. There are only so many open slots for new recruits in any given time period. For instance, if you are an Air Force recruit and you have the AFQT score of 40. (Minimum Score allowed of 36). Had you scored a 35 or less the recruiter cannot accept you. A 40 means you meet the ASVAB standard, but if the Air Force has several other candidates well above the 70+ range (which they typically do) you are likely not competitive enough to get into the Air Force at this time.

Las Fuerzas Armadas usan las calificaciones obtenidas por los alumnos en el ASVAB para identificar los empleos que mejor se acoplan a tus habilidades. Los alumnos de los primeros años, los de último año y los que están llevando estudios superiores pueden usar las calificaciones que obtuvieron en el ASVAB para alistarse hasta dos años después de haber rendido el examen.


After adding so much information to the aptitude test, there was a bit of difficulty interpreting the test results. In addition to that, a vast majority of test takers were deemed as being under qualified based on their test results. This is why the percentile change was made. It ensured that a 50% actually correlated with a person doing better than 50% of the test takers. Those revisions have worked hand-in-hand with the preparation of the armed forces.
