### Michigan Merit Exam: Forces in Physics Objectives

The Michigan Department of Education uses the Michigan Merit Exam every spring to gauge the academic development of 11th-grade public-school students in the state. The test is three-pronged: the ACT Plus Writing exam, three portions of the ACT WorkKeys exam, and Michigan's own M - Step test. This chapter is relevant to both the ACT Plus Writing and the M - Step test as both contain physics components. The paper-and-pencil ACT science test contains 40 multiple-choice questions and lasts 35 minutes. The computer-based M - Step science session isn't strictly timed but is estimated to last almost an hour.
