The ASVAB is sometimes given by school districts and some states as an additional apptitude test. In California, the ASVAB was not required by either of the high schools for which I taught. However, my class in Eastern Washington State did take it. The law probably varies from state to state, but there is definitely no military or legal mandate that requires it at the federal level. I would check with your local school district or state department of education for more information.
Maybe if he's he a military academy. When I was in high school I didn't had to take the ASVAB, but it is a very good skills test.
It's not required in public schools, but is offered for free and I've heard the school gets money for each child that takes it, so usually all the 11th graders are rounded up to take it. We took it at my school, but Guidence didn't look too hard to see if everyone was there.
No--but you can take it if you want to find out about what kind of career you should be doing. Perhaps if your child is attending a military school, or some private school, he might have to take it because of a school requirement. But it isn't a mandatory test around the United States.
The ASVAB test is not a requirement at my high school but I did take it thinking it was a test to help me choose a career. And another reason I took it was so I could cut a couple classes that day, but the test ended up being totally ridiculous and I think it is a waste of time. Military reps will most likely try to contact you after you recieve your results and I found that quite annoying beacuse I was not interested in joining the military after high school.
