ASVAB – Assembling Objects (AO) Test

How are you at doing jigsaw puzzles or reading maps and diagrams? The Assembling Objects Subtest measures your skill at visualizing spatial relationships.  In other words, it assesses your ability to look at pieces of an object and determine how those pieces fit together.  Again, this subtest is a specialized knowledge test that does not impact your Armed Forces Qualification Test (AFQT) score … but it can impact what military jobs you are qualified to fill.

On the Assembling Objects subtest of the CAT-ASVAB you will be tasked with solving 16 graphical problems in 15 minutes. On the paper version of the ASVAB, you will have 16 minutes to answer 25 questions.  On the test, you will be given a series of drawings in which the problem is presented in the first drawing and you are asked to find the solution in one of the other four drawings.

To see more sample questions, take our Assembling Objects practice test.

Our experts have carefully studied past ASVAB’s and crafted questions on commonly tested subject areas. As a result, our practice test will give you a good analysis of your knowledge level and show you if there are things that you need to study more to ensure you score your best on the ASVAB.

You can retake our test as many times as you like and each time that you do retake it the questions will be reordered to create a new testing experience for you.  Practice, practice, practice! Assembling objects is not something that is normally taught in high school, so taking our Assembling Objects exam can be an important step in getting the practice you need to score high on this subtest.

Good spatial skills as demonstrated on this subtest will allow people to quickly figure out maps as well as accurately interpret technical drawings and graphs, architectural drawings, X-rays and more.
