The Career and College Readiness researcher file contains commonly requested student-level assessment data from the K-12 environment pertaining to college and career readiness for students.This dataset reflects information about career and college readiness assessments administered by the Michigan Department of Education and also Advanced Placement examinations throughout the state. Administered tests include SAT (current), ACT (retired), PSAT (current), and Work Keys (current). Data covers all students from private, home schooled and public schools who have participated in these assessments. Prior to 2014-2015, ACT was a component of the MME assessment. For 2014-2015, it was given as its own assessment. Tests were administered during the spring each year. Data from the 2007-2008 school year forward are available. Future years’ data will be added on an annual basis as data become available. Note that prior to the 2015-2016 school year, the ACT was retired from testing by the MDE, and was replaced with the SAT.
