Education Authorities

CEM assessments help Education authorities to track pupil and school performance across the whole authority.

Head Teachers

CEM data allows head teachers to compare cohorts and assist in developing a school curriculum.

Teachers

CEM assessments help teachers by providing trackable details of pupil’s performance and development, an overview of class performance and help identifying struggling pupils and areas to target.

Researchers

Access to CEM’s data can help researchers to obtain independent research supported data on a wide range of subjects and demographics.

Policy Makers

Working with CEM can help policy makers to develop research supported policies and verify existing programs

Entrance Assessment

CEM Entrance Assessments measure verbal, numerical and non-verbal skills and are available as paper and computer-based services to schools, trusts and authorities, for children predominantly aged 10 to 11 years.

By beginning assessments with reasonably easy questions and then using the child's responses to decide whether to progress to more challenging questions or to back off to easier ones, the assessment automatically tailors to a child's ability.
