SAT & PSAT Resources
The SAT from The College Board came to Michigan in the Spring 2016 as the College Readiness test portion of the Michigan Merit Exam (MME). The SAT replaced the ACT. The MME includes the three WorkKeys tests, as well as Michigan-developed portions.
These tests from The College Board are new for many Michigan educators, parents, and students. This webpage houses a number of links to information about these tests, as well as links to resources for preparing for these tests. Please note that both the SAT and PSAT tests were significantly revised for the 2015-2016 school year. Beginning in 2016, the SAT is administered by The College Board.
