The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery or ASVAB will be given to all juniors at Washington High School on Thursday morning, October 22 on the Cherokee Western Iowa Tech Community College Campus. Although developed by the military, this test helps all high school students understand their special talents and how to choose a career that will complement these abilities. Three broad skill areas have been incorporated into the career search process: Verbal Skills, Math Skills, and Science and Technical Skills.
After the tests have been processed, a member of the armed services will spend time with the students in a classroom setting to explain the results of the individual tests. This information can help students understand which careers will fit them best in terms of personal interests, skills, and competencies.
Juniors will be asked to report to the WITCC campus by 8:15 Thursday morning. They should bring two #2 pencils and a calculator. It is also recommended that each student bring along school work or a book to read in case they finish testing before the time is called.
Please contact Deb Hankens in the guidance office at Washington High School with any questions at 225-6755.
