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 over 101 countries, and over 360,000 students will be taking a CEM assessment this academic year.

What does InCAS assess?

Students are assessed in these six key developmental areas which research shows are linked to later academic outcomes:

  • Reading - word recognition, decoding, and comprehension
  • Spelling
  • Mathematics - includes counting, arithmetic, fractions, patterns, algebra, measures, shape and space, and data handling
  • Mental Arithmetic - addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division
  • Developed Ability - picture vocabulary and non-verbal reasoning
  • Attitudes - students' attitudes to reading, maths, and school

"We use InCAS data to inform planning, set aspirational targets and give parents a picture of how their children are performing amongst a large, diverse cohort, rather than just amongst a class or year group."
