High schoolers' test scores up in all areas, many still not ready for college
Michigan high school juniors are improving in all core academic subjects. That's according to standardized test results released Monday.
The Michigan Merit Exam (MME) is given to high school juniors each year. The data released by the Michigan Department of Education (MDE) includes the ACT college entrance exam.
The biggest improvements in the results were in social studies and reading. State education officials credit tougher graduation requirements approved in 2006.
