Computer vs Paper & Pencil

The ASVAB is administered via both computer and paper and pencil.

Computerized ASVAB

The computerized ASVAB (called the CAT-ASVAB) is an adaptive test, which means that the test adapts to your ability level.

You are allowed to complete the CAT-ASVAB at your own pace. That is, when you complete a test in the battery, you can immediately move on to the next section without waiting for everyone else to move on. You may leave the test room as soon as you are finished with all of the tests.

You are not able to review or change your answers once you have submitted an answer on the CAT-ASVAB. If you are running out of time, it is best to continue trying to answer as best as you can rather than filling in random guesses for the remaining items, as the CAT-ASVAB has a penalty for guessing.

Paper & Pencil ASVAB

The paper and pencil ASVAB (called the P&P-ASVAB) is a traditional test, which means that everyone takes the same set of questions at the same pace.

You are allowed to review your answers on the P&P-ASVAB. However, you cannot go back to an earlier test section or proceed to the next test until instructed to do so. If you run out of time on the P&P-ASVAB, it is to your advantage to fill in random guesses for the remaining items, as there is no penalty for guessing.

Making the Grade tutoring service is accommodating and professional. I needed help with something similar to the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery test (ASVAB). The test I was seeking tutoring for was called the Officer Aptitude Rating test (OAR) for aspiring Naval Officer’s. The owner, Ms. Jenny, had never had a client who needed to take this test. She promptly bought sample materials and set me up with an outstanding tutor. Scheduling is easy and sessions are affordable with multiple tutoring packages. I highly recommend Making the Grade tutoring service.
