Your performance on the ASVAB can also determine if you are eligible for certain bonus enlistments incentives. So, scoring high on the ASVAB can be beneficial for your career. To make sure you get the most out of your ASVAB, you can practice with our practice ASVAB test.

What does the ASVAB measure

The ASVAB tests are designed to measure aptitudes in four domains, being verbal, math, science and technical, and spatial. The content of the ASVAB test is as follows:

  • General Science (GS) - Regards knowledge of physical and biological sciences (domain: science/technical)
  • Arithmetic Reasoning (AR) - Regards the ability to solve arithmetic word problems (domain: math)
  • Word Knowledge (WK) - Ability to select the correct meaning of a word presented in context and to identify the best synonym for a given word (domain: verbal)
  • Paragraph Comprehension (PC) - Ability to obtain information from written passages (domain: verbal)
  • Mathematics Knowledge (MK) - Knowledge of high school mathematics (domain: math)
  • Electronics Information (EI) - Knowledge of electricity and electronics (domain: science/technical)
  • *Automotive Information (AI) - Knowledge of automobile technology (domain: science/technical)
  • *Shop Information (SI) - Knowledge of tools and shop terminology and practices (domain: science/technical)
  • Mechanical Comprehension (MC) - Knowledge of mechanical and physical principles (domain: science/technical)
  • Assembling Object (AO) - Ability to determine how an object will look when its parts are put together (domain: spatial)

* The Automotive Information (AI) and Shop information (SI) tests are administered as separate tests in the computerized version of the test (CAT-ASVAB), but combined into one single score (labeled AS). The Automotive Information (AI) and Shop Information (SI) tests are combined into one test in the paper-and-pencil version of the test (P&P-ASVAB). 

Jobs in the Air Force are called Air Force Specialty Code (AFSC). To find what jobs in the Air Force you qualify for, the Air Force breaks down your scores in different “Line Scores”. The Air Force uses four aptitude areas called MAGE (mechanical, administrative, general, and electronics). Each line score consists of a few subtests where your MAGE scores are calculated as percentiles. Your percentile shows how you scored compared to other ones who have taken the test. The Air Force Line Scores are:
