Cuatro de los resultados del ASVAB se combinan juntos para crear las fuerzas armadas que califican a la prueba, o AFQT, que tiene su puntuación. Las pruebas utilizadas para AFQT son conocimiento de las matemáticas, razonamiento aritmético, conocimiento de las palabras y la comprensión de lectura. En cuanto a los resultados del ASVAB individuales, resultado AFQT 50 indica que se ha anotado al menos tan bien como la mitad del promedio nacional. Una puntuación más alta significa que su puntaje es mejor que el porcentaje de personas.


Al estudiar para selección múltiple pruebas como el ASVAB, aprenden a leer las instrucciones cuidadosamente antes de responder. Asegúrese de que usted entiende lo que está pidiendo la pregunta antes de marcar su respuesta ; no te pierdas las palabras como " no " o "salvo " que puede cambiar drásticamente el significado de una pregunta. Considere la pregunta con cuidado cada vez que una respuesta contiene palabras absolutas como nunca , nada, siempre o todos. Según Barron , estas palabras son a menudo pistas que la respuesta es , posiblemente, mal porque es demasiado amplia ; por el contrario , las palabras que limitan , como a veces , posiblemente, o en ocasiones , suelen indicar una elección que podría ser correcta. Eliminar las respuestas que sabes que están mal , y no reconsiderar respuestas que ha eliminado .

A lot of people see the “CAT” term attached to the ASVAB test when they first start looking into the test and aren’t sure what that stands for. This term is an acronym and it stands for “Computerized Adaptive Test”. There are three different versions of the ASVAB test. The CAT is available at military processing stations for enlisting soldiers. The pencil and paper (also known as the P&P or S-ASVAB) version of the test is available for high school and college students who may not actually enlist. The third type of ASVAB test is the MET-ASVAB, or Mobile Examination Test, which is available only for enlisted soldiers at mobile testing centers (this test is also done with paper and pencil).
You can't use the AR and MK score shown on your ASVAB Score Sheet. The Score Sheet shows "number correct" for your AR and MK Scores, because "number correct" is what is used for job qualifications. However, the military does not use this same score when computing the AFQT. They use the "weighted scores" of the ASVAB sub-tests for AR and MK. Harder questions in these areas get more points than easier questions. The "weighted scores" for AR and WK are not listed on the ASVAB score sheet given to you after the test.
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.
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.
