PRE Writing Test and ACT Alternative

Please see below for an important update from the College of Education regarding the Professional Readiness Exam (PRE) Writing Test and the ACT alternative:

As of September 2015, the ACT has changed the way they administer and score the ACT test. The English +Writing combined score has been eliminated and replace with an English + Reading + Writing combined test score.  

For those of you who are considering taking the ACT as a substitute for the PRE Writing, this is no longer an option accepted by the Michigan Department of Education. The Michigan Department of Education is currently accepting the ACT Reading (22) and Math (22) scores in lieu of the  Professional Readiness Exam Reading and Math, as well as the old ACT English + Writing (24) score if taken and passed prior to September 2015 for the PRE Writing.   

If you have any questions concerning this change, please contact your College of Education advisor at 616-331-6650
