Durung the Caldwell County Rotary Club meeting on November 30, 2021, Rotarian Ralph Prestwood spoke to the club on the topic of the ASVAB, which stands for Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery. The test is basically a military enlistment test which determines if an individual is qualified to enter the armed services, and what would be an appropriate job for the individual.
Roughly 70% take a computerized version of the ASVAB.  The test measures aptitudes in four domains:  Verbal, Math, Science/Technical, and Spatial.
