year, Winston Churchill High School offers students in grades 10, 11 and 12 the
opportunity to take a career exploration assessment, the ASVAB (Armed Services
Vocational Aptitude Battery). This three
hour assessment is the most widely used multiple aptitude test battery in the
world. It assesses a student’s ability
to learn new skills and is a predictor of success in training and education
programs. The ASVAB test results provide
a snapshot of current knowledge and skills.
These scores can be compared with the educational or job requirements
for occupations of interest. 63% of
those who participated in the ASVAB program said that it helped them to
consider careers they had not thought about before.
ASVAB test will be administered Wednesday, April 10at 7:45 a.m., periods 1-4
in the back of the auditorium. This will
be handled as an “in school field trip” and students will be excused from
class. The duration of the test is approximately 3 hours. In order for your child to take the test, you
must give your permission. All students will be taking the test under
“Option 8” which means that no information will be given to the military, only
to the individual students and to Churchill. The ASVAB results will be distributed to
the test takers at a follow-up session on a date to be determined.
A testing professional will provide students with appropriate explanations of
their test scores, as well as suggestions for their use.
The required permission form must be returned by email or hand delivery to the Counseling Office by 3:00 p.m. Thursday, April 4. If you have any
questions regarding the testing, please contact Luana Zimmerman at 240-740-5413 or by email
