*All test takers are given a summary results sheet that shows their percentile score in every test area. A percentile score of 50 means that a score was achieved that was better than 50 percent of all test takers. Percentile scores are given specifically for test takers of their gender and their grade level. Information obtained from the test is only shared with agencies within the Department of Defense. Test takers are informed that their specific scores will be used for up to two years for recruiting purposes. After two years, test scores will be used for research purposes only.*

**“Le doy las gracias primero a Dios y a ustedes tambien. Los maestros estan bien capacitados y se enfocan a ayudar a jovenes y adultos a pasar el A.S.V.A.B, me siento bendecido porque llegue a pasar el A.S.V.A.B de mi primer intento. Al Prof. Willie muchas gracias, aprendi mucho en matemáticas en ese mes. A la Prof. Saby muchas gracias, aprendi mucho inglés. Mejor repaso que he cogido, si conociera a alguien que va a coger el A.S.V.A.B le hablare de ustedes. Gracias, los quiero !**

##### Por ejemplo, si recibe una puntuación percentil de 72, se puede decir que su puntaje es tan bien o mejor que 72 de 100 del grupo de la norma que tomaron el examen. (Y, por cierto, esta estadística a partir de 1997 no es un error tipográfico. El ASVAB última " re-normado " en 2004, y el grupo de la muestra utilizada para la norma era esa gente que tomaron el examen en 1997.)

**The Paragraph Comprehension section of the test measures your ability to read a passage and interpret the information contained within it. You may read a selection and be asked to interpret the author’s purpose, or what a particular word in the passage means, based on the context of the sentence where it appears. To help you better prepare for the exam, the Paragraph Comprehension section of the ASVAB practice test has passages of similar length and style to those on the actual ASVAB test. The CAT-ASVAB test has 11 questions in 22 minutes; the paper-and-pencil version has 15 questions in 13 minutes.**

Educación superior indígena sigue a tres desafíos elementales: acceso, equidad y calidad. Entonces viene el dilema sobre si una Universidad privada ofrece más que las instituciones del sector público o viceversa. Hoy la inclinación es más hacia colegios privados para ingeniería y administración de títulos en la última década, con masa estudiantes actualmente matriculados en instituciones privadas.

^{The Mathematics Knowledge section of the exam measures your knowledge of various math areas, such as algebra and geometry. You may be asked to find the square root of a number or the volume of a brick with given dimensions. Algebraic problems may require finding the value of “y” in a given equation. A review of math symbols—such as ≠, ≤, and √—can help you solve the given problems much faster, and using our ASVAB math study guide to practice answering the algebra and geometry questions on the test can help increase your overall AFQT score. The CAT-ASVAB has 16 questions in 20 minutes; the paper-and-pencil version has 25 questions in 24 minutes. }

The ASVAB is administered at a Military Entrance Processing Station (MEPS). If there is not a MEPS near you, you may take the ASVAB at a satellite location called a Military Entrance Test (MET) site. There are two formats of the ASVAB: computer-administered test (CAT) and paper and pencil (P&P). All MEPS administer the CAT-ASVAB, while MET sites administer the P&P ASVAB.

__Word Knowledge (WK), Paragraph Comprehension (PC), Arithmetic Reasoning (AR), and Mathematics Knowledge (MK). Scores on the AFQT are used to determine your eligibility for enlistment in the Army, Navy, Air Force, or Marine Corps. The other six test scores on the ASVAB tests are used to determine the best job for you in the military as your grades will demonstrate knowledge, skill, and interest in certain subjects and tasks.__

_{The ASVAB is routinely reviewed to eliminate any potential biases from questions and scoring. The exam underwent a major revision in 2002. Two years later, a renormalization of the percentile scoring system was performed to ensure that a 50 percent score represented performing better than 50 percent of all test takers. The 10-section ASVAB improves the matching of volunteers with available jobs and helps match job openings with qualified individuals. }

*Understanding the ASVAB score range is to understand standard deviations. The highest score on the ASVAB is a 99 and the lowest score is a one. Scores are based on the mean of all examinees. This is to say that a score of 50 would account for an average score. Each increment of 10 represents a single standard deviation from the mean score. So, for example, a score of 80 would be three standard deviations better than the meanwhile a score of 30 would be two standard deviations lower than the mean score.*
