CEM assessments for students aged 3-19

Our computer-based, adaptive baseline assessments provide an objective view of your students’ strengths and abilities in key areas and a wealth of data that can shape your teaching and unlock their potential.

“Yellis has been of great help to our Cedar Team, students, and parents especially, in the time of the pandemic.”
Rukaiya Salman, The Cedar School in Pakistan
“Having the CEM data throughout all of the disruptions last year was so useful as it gave us scientific evidence to support examination predictions.”
Vanita Uppal, The British School, New Delhi in India
“The need to mentor and nurture students into a routine of class, homework and independent study is greater than ever. Focused mentor or tutor sessions are a perfect opportunity to share and discuss Independent Pupil Records with students.”
