ASVAB Mentor Request System
The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) is an assessment which measures developed abilities and helps predict future academic and occupational success in the military. The ASVAB mentor request system is specifically designed to assist individuals in preparing for two sections of the assessment which are essential to meeting enlistment requirements of the United States Armed Forces. As the West Virginia Board of Education’s three E’s of career readiness include pursuing employment, education and/or enlistment, this system supports the aspirations of students, parents of students (age 17 or older) and adults who may be interested in full-time or part-time careers in the military, by notifying Common Ground Partners which have expressed a desire to provide academic mentors to those preparing to take the assessment. These mentors utilize free online curricula to guide individuals as they prepare for sections of the assessment based in mathematics (arithmetic reasoning and mathematics knowledge) and English (paragraph comprehension and word knowledge), which lead to the primary scores contributing to a candidate’s enlistment eligibility.
Important Notes: Organizations contacting those who request assistance via this system may be military-based (e.g., West Virginia National Guard, Navy, Army, Air Force, Marines, etc.), a veteran non-profit or non-military based (WVDE Adult Education or WVDE Communities in Schools). By submitting a request via this system, you accept being provided information about military career paths including enlistment eligibility criteria. You must also accept that mentors assigned may be individuals who are part of a Common Ground Partner organization or members of the community who are unaffiliated with partnering organizations. While Common Ground Partners will do their best to find a mentor for those who submit a request, you are not guaranteed to be assigned a mentor as assistance is contingent upon available resources and personnel.
