Proos Excited Over High School Exam Scores



The Michigan Department of Education says there is a four-year upward trend in student proficiency on both the 2013 Michigan Merit Exam and ACT college-entrance exam. State Senator John Proos say this is positive news for every student in Southwest Michigan.

Listen:

   
The overall score for Michigan students on the ACT exam increased for the fourth consecutive year to 19.7, with the state’s averages rising in all categories. On the MME, math and writing had the most improvement. Science and social studies also showed four-year positive gains. Reading scores have fluctuated, ending with a slight decline, but it still has the highest student performance of the five MME subject areas with 53.5 percent of students scoring proficient or advanced.
