LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Michigan's high school juniors have shown slight gains on ACT college-entrance exam scores but declines on parts of the Michigan Merit Exam.

State education officials announced Monday that the average composite score on the ACT rose from 19.6 last year to 19.7. The MME passing rates saw overall declines, though the rates were unchanged in a couple of subjects.

The Michigan Department of Education says the results "show a four-year upward trend in student proficiency." State Superintendent Mike Flanagan says in a statement that fluctuations are typical but the results underscore "the need to continue the state's strong commitment to high standards."

The MME is administered over three days in the spring and incorporates the college-entrance exam and a job skills assessment.
