Test changes coming for students in Michigan

By  | 

AP, (WILX) - Michigan eighth-graders will see changes in state testing this spring in a step that could better prepare students for college entrance exams.

The Detroit News reports that the College Board's PSAT 8/9 test will replace the Michigan Student Test of Educational Progress in math and English Language Arts in April.

Preparations for the switch began two years ago when the Legislature called for testing to better align with college entrance exams.
