“We looked at many assessments until we found CEM. We liked the fact that CEM is part of Cambridge, so it fits well with all of our programmes, and that the assessments were research-based and used extensively in the UK and around the world.”
"Having the CEM data throughout all of the disruptions last year was so useful as it gave us scientific evidence to support examination predictions; it was so easy for us to share all of the predictive data and historic data with Cambridge."
“We needed a tool to help us determine the level of learners before they start a course. We also wanted a way of measuring the impact of teaching interventions on learning, and a means of setting realistic teaching targets for teachers. CEM tests help us understand each child’s potential. We have found CEM’s data to help us develop informed teaching and learning interventions before the start of each Cambridge course. This has led to better results in Cambridge exams.”
