2-ASVAB Student -- Career Exploration program: The ASVAB Career Exploration program in schools is a modified test administered to 10th, 11th, and 12th grade students for career exploration.
IFHS is offering Career Exploration Program testing only to students whose families are Pre-Registered for MAP 2017 and select the free career testing option.
