In accordance with the revised school code, summative assessments for English language arts (ELA) and mathematics shall be administered to all public school pupils in grades 3-11. The Michigan Department of Education has chosen to administer the College Board’s PSAT 8/9 and PSAT 10 to students in grades 8, 9, and 10 to fulfill this requirement. The PSAT must be taken on the scheduled state testing day. The PSAT 8/9 for students in grade 9 and the PSAT 10 for students in grade 10 are not currently included in Michigan's accountability system.

The PSAT 8/9 replaced the M-STEP ELA and Mathematics assessment in grade 8 and is included in Michigan's accountability system along with the grade 8 M-STEP science and social studies.

Note: Due to the Coronavirus pandemic and the postponement of Spring 2020 testing, 9th and 10th grade students, in the fall of 2020, will be expected to take the PSAT™ 8/9 and PSAT/NMSQT®.
