This supplemental guide to the interpretation of the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) results in local guidance and counseling programs is designed for use by high school counselors, service test administrators, and educational specialists. This addendum to the original study presents expectancy tables for 28 civilian vocational-technical courses in which 5,211 students were enrolled in 25 high schools situated in the northeast, midwest and far west regions of the country. Also included in this note is a suggested ASVAB interpretative guide. School samples were obtained through voluntary participation. The investigators are indebted to all participating counselors, administrative personnel, principals, and students.
