Testing Zone

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.

"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
