Juniors and seniors took the ASVAB test, a career exploration test, last Tuesday. The ASVAB is a prediction test for upper classman, and based on the student's answers, offers a wide range of career options that the student may be interested in. The test is required and is taken in either 11th or 12th grade.
The juniors and seniors assembled in the auditorium at 8:30 and began the first of four sections of the test. When they were finally released at 11:30, most were grumbling about the length of the test, 350 questions. Taylor Rains, a junior, walked into his fifth period just as the bell for lunch was ringing, he said with a smile, "The test was pretty easy, but it was so long." The majority of students shared Taylor's opinion but were also grateful to discover talents they may not have known about, and for the opportunity to look at possible careers.
