Anticipated* 2017 MICHIGAN MERIT EXAM DATES
The Michigan Department of Education has instituted a spring online testing period which involves a window of approxi- mately seven weeks. At the time of the this publication, the 2016-17 window was not published. The window from the previous year was from the 2nd Monday of April (April 11, 2016) through the 4th Monday in May (May 23, 2016). The window conflicts with some MHSAA spring tournaments but has apparently increased flexibility as the online tests may be administered on any instructional day and not all students need to be administered the same assessment at the same time, nor on the same day. Consult the school counselor and the Michigan Department of Education for the testing dates for 2016-17.
