The Michigan Merit Examination (MME) assesses students in eleventh grade based on Michigan high school standards. It is administered each spring and consists of the following components:
  • SAT plus Writing
  • Michigan-developed assessments in English, mathematics, science, and social studies.

Registration for the MME test will take place during school in the spring. Students should be prepared to choose up to four colleges they would like their SAT scores to be sent to free of charge on this date. Students who do not list colleges on the registration form will have to visit College Board Scores and pay to have their scores sent at a later date.

The MME is administered over several days. The dates for the MME are typically in  April.

Completion of the MME is a Hartland graduation requirement. All students who desire a diploma from Hartland High School must complete all sections of the MME exam. If a student misses a day of testing, they must contact the Hartland High School Dean of Students in order to make plans to retake the section missed.

Students wishing to take the SAT on a date other than the one time provided through the MME exam will need to register for the SAT through College Board. The SAT test is given at various high schools throughout the local area on designated national test dates. Students with either a 504 Plan or an IEP should talk to their counselor before registering themselves online, as they may qualify to take the SAT with accommodations through SAT's SSD Office.
