How to Understand Michigan Merit Exam Results
  • Lenawee ISD
  • June, 2011

MME Facts
  • Fifth year of administering the MME
  • The high school juniors who took the Michigan
    Merit Exam this past spring are the second set of
    students required by law to complete the new high
    school requirements in order to graduate.
  • The test is administered to most students over a
    three-day period.
  • ACT Plus Writing college entrance exam on Day 1,
  • three subtests of the WorkKeys job skills
    assessment on Day 2,
  • additional items in mathematics, science, and
    social studies that complete the measurement of
    Michigan High School Content Expectations on Day

Performance Levels on the MME
  • Four levels for MME tests
  • Advanced Wow
  • Proficient Youve Got It
  • Partially Proficient Nearly
  • Not Proficient Oops

What were the components of each MME test score?
  • MME Reading
  • ACT Reading and WorkKeys Reading for Information
  • MME Writing
  • ACT English and ACT Writing
  • MME Math
  • ACT Math, ACT WorkKeys Applied Mathematics, ACT
    WorkKeys Locating Information, and Michigan
  • MME Science
  • ACT Science and Michigan Science
  • MME Social Studies
  • ACT WorkKeys Locating Information and Michigan
    Social Studies

MME Reading
  • Reading, Listening, and Viewing
  • Strategy Development
  • Develop critical reading strategies
  • Meaning Beyond the Literal Level
  • Use a variety of reading strategies to construct
    meaning (e.g., drawing inferences confirming and
    correcting making comparisons, connections, and
    generalizations and drawing conclusions)
  • Independent Reading
  • Develop as a reader for personal, social, and
    political purposes, through independent reading.
  • Literature and Culture
  • Close Literary Reading
  • Develop the skills of close and contextual
    literary reading

MME Writing
  • Writing, Speaking, and Expressing
  • Writing Process
  • Understand and practice writing as a recursive
  • Purpose and Audience
  • Communicate in writing using content, form,
    voice, and style appropriate to the audience and
    purpose (e.g., to reflect, persuade, inform,
    analyze, entertain, inspire)
  • Inquiry Research
  • Gather evidence and draw conclusions about a
  • Effective Use of Language
  • Use language effectively in a variety of contexts

MME Math
Quantitative Literacy and Logic
  • Reasoning About Numbers, Systems and Quantitative
  • represent quantitative relationships using
    mathematical symbols, and interpret relationships
    from those representations (Algebra I)
  • Calculation, Algorithms, and Estimation
  • describe and use algorithms in appropriate
    situations (Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II)
  • Mathematical Reasoning, Logic, and Proof
  • interpret arguments made about quantitative
    situations, know the language and laws of logic
    in both mathematical and everyday settings, and
    write proofs using direct and indirect methods

Algebra and Functions
  • Expressions, Equations, and Inequalities
  • recognize, construct, interpret, and evaluate
    expressions (Algebra I, Algebra II)
  • Functions
  • understand functions, their representations, and
    their attributes, perform transformations,
    combine and compose functions, and find inverses
    (Algebra I, Algebra II)
  • Families of Functions
  • the symbolic and graphical forms of each function
    family. using them as tools for solving problems
    or for modeling real-world situations. (Algebra
    I, Algebra II)

Geometry and Trigonometry
  • Figures and Their Properties
  • represent basic geometric figures, polygons, and
    conic sections and apply their definitions and
    properties in solving problems and justifying
    arguments (Geometry, Algebra II)
  • Relationships Between Figures
  • use and justify relationships between lines,
    angles, area and volume formulas, and 2- and
    3-dimensional representations (Geometry)
  • Transformations of Figures in the Plane
  • solve problems about distance-preserving
    transformations and shape-preserving
    transformations (Geometry)

Statistics and Probability
  • Univariate Data-Examining Distributions
  • plot and analyze univariate data by considering
    the shape of distributions and analyzing
    outliers find and interpret commonly-used
    measures of center and variation and explain and
    use properties of the normal distribution.
    (Algebra II)
  • Bivariate DataExamining Relationships
  • plot and interpret bivariate data by constructing
    scatterplots, recognizing linear and nonlinear
    patterns, and interpreting correlation
    coefficients fit and interpret regression models
    (Algebra I)
  • Probability Models and Operations
  • understand probability and find probabilities in
    various situations, applying the concepts of
    probability to make decisions (ACT College
    Readiness Standard)

MME Science
  • Inquiry and Reflection
  • Identify patterns in data, describe a reason for
    a given conclusion using evidence, and develop an
    understanding of a scientific concept by
    accessing information from multiple sources
  • Earth Science
