    The PSAT Test is the National Merit Scholarship qualifying test. Sophomores and Juniors may take this test to help prepare for taking the ACT Test. Students may compare scores nationally with other college bound sophomores and juniors.

    The Preliminary SAT®/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test is a co-sponsored program by the College Board and National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC). PSAT/NMSQT stands for Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. It's a standardized test that provides firsthand practice for the SAT Reasoning Test™. It also gives you a chance to enter National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) scholarship programs.

    The PLAN and PSAT tests can qualify students for Dual Enrollment.

    PSAT Fee = $14.00

    Also, contact your guidance office for a copy of the Official Student Guide to the PSAT/NMSQT to help you prepare before test day.



    The Michigan Merit Examination is the state assessment administered to all students enrolled in Grade 11 in March of each year. The MME consists of three major components: the ACT college entrance examination, the WorkKeys job skills assessments in reading and mathematics, and Michigan assessments in mathematics, science, social studies, and persuasive writing. The combined MME assessment measures student learning in the Michigan high school standards, benchmarks, and core content expectations.

    The Michigan Merit Examination (MME) is administered in the spring. The Michigan Department of Education prepared the schedule below in cooperation with ACT, taking into account a variety of issues including ACT national testing dates, religious holy days and statewide high school events. The diversity of school and community needs such as traditional Spring Breaks was also considered although it was not possible to avoid conflicts for all schools. Dates are contingent upon ACT final approval.

    We will be giving the ACT ASPIRE to 9th and 10th graders.

    To qualify for the Michigan Promise scholarship installment payments, eligible students are allowed one retake of the MME; students re-taking the MME must re-take all components.



    This test is often required for students planning on attending a college out of the state of Michigan. Most HHS students elect to take the ACT because it is administered locally and all college and universities in Michigan will accept either test for admission purposes. See the counseling office for more information regarding the SAT.
