Michigan's Education Assessment System
Once each year, all students in Michigan take a high-quality state summative assessment. Summative assessments measure what students know and are able to do at specific grade levels and in specific subject areas. All of Michigan’s state assessments measure student progress with Michigan’s content standards or other career or college-readiness goals. High school students take the PSAT™ 8/9 in grade 9 and PSAT™ 10 in grade 10, to inform schools, students, and parents on what students know in ELA and mathematics, and help prepare students for the SAT college entrance exam given to every high school junior as part of the Michigan Merit Examination (MME). The MME consists of a free SAT® with Essay that also measures student knowledge on state ELA and mathematics standards, M-STEP science and social studies components, and a work skills assessment called ACT® WorkKeys®.
State Assessments Provide:
♦ An important snapshot of student achievement at a state, district and building level
♦ Valuable information to parents and teachers on their student’s academic achievement
♦ Important data for schools and districts to evaluate curriculum and programming effectiveness
