Percentile Normative Tables for the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (1973-74 School Year Data Base).
Wilfong, Harry D.; And Others
This report summarizes test performance for 771,031 students tested on Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) Form 2 during school year 1973-74, with separate normative tables provided by sub-test, aptitude composite, grade, sex and geographic region. New data are provided for ninth grade and post-high school students. Information contained in the tables parallels percentile scores reported for individual students to be tested with ASVAB in school year 1974-75. Percentile tables in the present report are designed for use by high school counselors as an interpretative guide and a supplemental reference to the AFVTG computer printout of student test scores. Users are cautioned that 1974-75 represents the first time ASVAB percentile scores are to be computed around empirically developed student norms rather than representative service derived mobilization population samples. As such, the data are not representative of the total available high school population, but do characterize actual test performance of students examined during the preceding year's test cycle. Additionally, where individual test score comparisons from one year to the next may be required, the 1974-75 ASVAB percentile reports will represent different levels of student performance over previous reports (i.e., prior to September 1974).
