Winefordner, David W.
This booklet is designed to assist counselors and teachers in working with students and others who have completed the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB). It discusses how ASVAB results of academic, verbal, and math ability may be used as aptitude factors for identifying and exploring worker trait groups, as identified in the Worker Trait Group Guide (available separately). The format of the Worker Trait Group Guide is explained, with emphasis on identifying the military classifications related to the civilian occupations listed under the Worker Trait Groups related to identified interests or other personal attributes. Use of ASVAB results to estimate students' chances of qualifying for entry into a military classification is also described. Information is also provided on how students can use their ASVAB results for exploring nonmilitary careers. (YLB)
