Career Readiness Assessment
The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery Test (ASVAB) is a career exploration/skills test designed to measure student aptitude, or capacity for learning, in 8 areas: General Science, Word Knowledge, Paragraph Comprehension, Arithmetic Reasoning, Mathematics Knowledge, Electronics Information, Auto & Shop Information, and Mechanical Comprehension. 10th-12th grade students (whether they are military bound, college bound, or workforce bound) complete this test to help identify weak/strong areas of aptitude.All Juniors will also take a state mandated career readiness assessment in the spring.
College Readiness Assessments
The Preliminary SAT (PSAT) is offered to all Sophomores. The PSAT is a great primer for the SAT. Additionally, Juniors graders electing to take the PSAT by request may qualify for National Merit Scholars and award merit scholarships. The PSAT has two sections: Math and Evidence-Based Reading and Writing. Students will be asked passage-based questions – sometimes accompanied by tables, graphs, and charts – and math problems drawing upon algebra, geometry, and a little trigonometry.
All Juniors have the choice of taking either the ACT or SAT on a school day. Both are tools that assess readiness for college. The ACT is also a timed multiple-choice examination that includes the following tests: English, Reading, Math, Science, and Writing. The SAT is a timed multiple-choice examination consisting of the following tests: Reading, Writing and Language, Mathematics and the SAT Essay.
