New App Allows Electronic Cyber Test Score Transmission

By Louis B. Wiseman

United States Military Entrance Processing Command recently implemented an automated solution to electronically transfer Cyber Test scores to the services.

The Cyber Test Score Delivery application allows transmitting test results from USMEPCOM's data base to the Army, Marine Corps, Navy and Air Force data bases. This gives the services direct access to their applicant test scores in real time. Applicants applying for careers in cyber technology normally take the test after completing the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery. The test, formally known as the Information and Communication Technology Literacy Test, is designed to assess applicants' aptitude in many areas of cyber technology.

USMEPCOM administers the test daily at all 65 Military Entrance Processing Stations and the Las Vegas Remote Processing Substation.

Computer and network security and vulnerability have become increasingly important over the last decade, which has led all branches of service to improve cyber and information technology functions and classifications.
