The Michigan Merit Exam (MME) is a standardized test, a replacement for the Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP) test, a minimum-competency test for high school students. It was optional for class of 2007 (i.e., it could be taken instead of the MEAP) but was required for the class of 2008 and beyond. The MME is used to measure "Adequate yearly progress" as required under the No Child Left Behind Act.

Part of the MME is the ACT. In addition, there are Michigan-specific sections, including one on social studies, an essay-writing portions, and the WorkKeys test.

Scoring Edit

Students’ MEAP scores are divided into four performance levels: Exceeded Expectations, Met Expectations, Basic, and Apprentice. Students who place in either the Met Expectations or Exceeded Expectations levels are considered to be “proficient” in that subject. Those who place in the Apprentice or Basic levels are deemed to be “not proficient.” The student must score a 1100 to earn the label "Met Expectations."

Sections Edit

English Edit

The English portion of the exam is broken into three sub-scores: reading, writing, and "English Language Arts".

Math Edit

Social Studies Edit

Science Edit

WorkKeys Edit

The WorkKeys test is a section of the MME which tested students' ability to handle everyday business work: reading forms, handling addresses, scheduling, and similar.

It was added as a requirement for members of the class of 2007 who took the MEAP.

Scholarship eligibilityEdit

Students taking and passing the entire MME were eligible for the Michigan Promise Scholarship, which provides up to $4,000 for postsecondary education in Michigan or a military service academy.[1]
