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.
Students are assessed in these six key developmental areas which research shows are linked to later academic outcomes:
Adaptive, personalised and tailored assessment. Flexible - assess at any time of year, with classes, groups or individuals. No teacher marking required.
Quickly identify students' abilities and learning needs. Discover hidden strengths. Compare performance with standardised and age‑equivalent scores.
Raise expectations and set realistic, challenging targets. Use the formative and diagnostic feedback to tailor your teaching and plan early interventions.
Target resources effectively. Support professional judgement with reliable data insights. Monitor student and cohort progress.
Monitor student, class and school progress year-on-year. See the impact of your teaching.

"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."
