Michigan Merit Exam

The Michigan Merit Examination (MME) assesses students in grade 11 (and eligible students in grade 12) based on Michigan high school standards. It is administered each spring, and consists of three components:

  • ACT Plus Writing® college entrance examination - To count toward valid MME scores, must be taken as part of MME, not separately.
  • WorkKeys® job skills assessments in reading, mathematics, and "locating information"
  • Michigan-developed assessments in mathematics, science, and social studies
