The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) is a multiple choice test, administered by the United States Military Entrance Processing Command, used to determine qualification for enlistment in the United States armed forces. It is often offered to American high school students when they are in the 11th grade, though anyone eligible to and interested in enlisting can take it.
The Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test is a multiple-choice standardized test administered by the College Board and National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) in the United States.
An estimated 1.3 million high school sophomores and juniors take the test each year. At WHS the PSAT is given to all students in grades 9-11. The scores from the PSAT are used (with the permission of the student) to determine eligibility and qualification for the National Merit Scholarship Program (11th graders only).
