making it easier to budget for your baseline assessments
We’ve introduced a new pricing model that makes it easier to see the cost of incorporating baseline assessments into your student development plans.
Our cohort fees have been replaced by product fees and we’ve broadened our student number tiers, ensuring that smaller schools or those with fewer resources are better able to use CEM assessments to advance the academic future of their students.
