SAT & PSAT Resources
SAT & PSAT Resources
The SAT from The College Board came to Michigan in Spring 2016 as the College Readiness portion of the Michigan Merit Exam (MME). Michigan now provides the SAT to all high school juniors (11th grade), the PSAT 10 to 10th graders, the PSAT 8/9 to all 9th graders, and the PSAT 8/9 to all 8th graders. These tests are given in April as part of the annual state summative testing program.
This webpage houses a number of links to information about these tests, as well as links to resources for preparing for these tests. Also, MCISD provides SAT & PSAT preparation sessions to county students at no cost each year. These typically happen in February/March each spring. When tests are provided statewide in the fall, prep sessions may also be offered in the fall. For more information on these sessions, please email or call Kathy Berry, Director of Research, Evaluation, and Assessment, using the contact information provided on this page.
