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

Why do schools choose MidYIS?
