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.

Why do schools choose MidYIS?

  • Challenge each student at an appropriate level aligned to their ability with an adaptive assessment.
  • Set motivational and realistic targets for students with predictive data and Chances Graphs which indicate likely future performance at GCSE and IGCSE.
  • MidYIS value-added reports provide evidence for senior leadership to use for self-evaluation and inspections, and to understand progress across the whole school to drive improvement.

"We use baseline assessments as a gage of potential for our
students when they first come to us in year 7. "

Niall O'Connor, Deputy Head, Academic, Barnard Castle School, UK

MidYIS has the best standardisation of any baseline and cognitive abilities assessment provider

MidYIS is standardised using over 650,000 student assessments from over 9,500 school cohorts from a period of six academic years. Using data over a longer period means we can follow long-term trends to get a more accurate standardisation but avoid short term fluctuations.
