Michigan Department of Education (MDE) uses the SAT as part of the Michigan Merit Examination (MME). The state also offers the PSAT 8/9 and PSAT 10 are free of charge each spring.
"The SAT is a standardized college entrance exam that every college in the US and over 600 institutions internationally. It assesses the knowledge and skills your child is learning in the classroom—the same skills that are key to success in college and career." ~ SAT Overview by CollegeBoard
The SAT is accepted at all Michigan universities and is already a familiar test to many in the state. The test keeps pace with what colleges are looking for today, focusing on the few durable things that evidence shows matter most for college and career readiness and success. And it reflects what Michigan students are already learning in their classrooms.
FALL TESTING: What is the PSAT/NMSQT?
"The PSAT/NMSQT is a standardized test that 11th graders (and some 10th graders) take in October. Like the SAT, it measures the knowledge and skills in reading, writing, and math students learn in the classroom—the same knowledge and skills your child needs to succeed in college and career." ~ PSAT/NMSQT Overview by CollegeBoard
PSAT = Preliminary SAT (Scholastic Assessment Tests)
NMSQT = National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test
Normally this optional test requires a pre-paid fee to take the test, however, due to the COVID-19 pandemic the October 2020 PSAT NMSQT testing fee was waived by CollegeBoard, but they did require that a student be pre-registered within a few weeks prior to testing.
Watch the video below to learn how to get immediate access your PSAT/NMSQT test scores.
The 2021-2022 PSAT/NMSQT registration requirements will be announced by early September.

"20 hours of practice on Khan Academy is associated with an average 115-point score increase from the PSAT/NMSQT to the SAT, nearly double the average gain without Khan
In 2017, Khan Academy and the College Board, the maker of the SAT, analyzed gains between the PSAT/NMSQT and the SAT and found a positive relationship between use of Official SAT Practice and score improvements on the SAT. Score gains are consistent across gender, family income, race, ethnicity and parental education level." ~ Raising confidence and scores reported by Khan Academy, 5/8/2017
