In secondary education students tend to be judged subject by subject. The CEM systems go deeper. In secondary education it is essential to understand an individual student’s ability and potential on a subject by subject basis. CEM’s systems do this and also allow you to monitor performance at both subject and school level. MidYIS (ages 11-14) and Yellis (ages 14-16) uniquely measure what we call developed ability - students’ underlying raw learning potential, free of the influence of curriculum-based teaching.
To establish a baseline each student takes a 45 minute test - vocabulary, maths, non-verbal and (MidYIS only) skills which contribute to an overall curriculum-free measurement. If you want to measure specific ability in mathematics, reading and science midway through secondary you can choose the CEM system that does just that – INSIGHT.
