The “Object Assembly” subtest is a new addition to the ASVAB. This test requires that you organize objects. Real objects are not utilized however; the test administrator will present graphics of different shapes and sizes to all test takers. The test consists of sixteen questions with allotting fifteen minutes to complete the exam.
Connecting shapes and graphics on the computer
You will view in the first series a box that will represent a problem. You will be given instructions on how to connect the graphics. This goal is to replicate the “correct” box with assembling the graphics together to replicate the first box. The subtest will begin on a beginner level proving easy while progressing with more difficult assembly graphics and boxes.
This test might appear “puzzling”
Another type of problem you will face on the “Object Assembly” subtest will greatly resemble a puzzle. You will view a box that contains graphics of shapes and pieces. One box will offer the graphical pieces you will need in order to form the requested shape. This section of the subtest will offer minimal graphical pieces. This subtest is timed which proves a little stressful for anyone who has issues with concentrating.
There is no way to suggest in preparing for the Object Assembly subtest. High school students will realize while taking the test that nothing they performed in high school could have prepared them for the subtest.
You will be required to demonstrate the skill of spatial perception. In all fairness, if you are good at jigsaw puzzles and actually enjoy them, you will find the “Object Assembly” test difficult. This subtest is not part of the CORE tests that determine your eligibility for military service. The “Object Assembly” test was specifically designed in recognizing a specific aptitude for specific military jobs that require the same ability needed to perform this subtest.
