Assessments to empower schools

What started off as a personal small-scale research project in 1982 has developed into a whole series of assessments for schools across the world. We help you to uncover students’ baseline abilities, understand their capabilities and unlock their full potential. CEM assessments are used by education professionals in 109 countries, and over 481,000 students will be taking a CEM assessment this academic year.

What is ASPECTS?

Developed to complement your own observations of early learning, ASPECTS provides objective and independent information that helps you to identify learning needs and development.
