The company that administers the ACT has changed the format and is no longer offering the Combined English/Writing portion of the test. Therefore, the Michigan Department of Education will no longer be accepting the Combined English/Writing portion ACT score in place of the writing portion of the Professional Readiness Exam (PRE). If you took the Combined English/Writing portion of the ACT and received a qualifying score (24 or higher) on August 15, 2015 or before, you are still eligible to use that score to fulfill the writing portion of the PRE. After August 15, 2015 students will only be able to use the PRE or a qualifying Michigan Merit Exam score (1129 or higher) for the writing portion of the exam. Again, ACT no longer offers a combined score for English and Writing and may not be used as an alternative score for the PRE writing portion.
