Introducing Teaching and Learning Guidance for Cambridge Primary Insight

We know how much schools value our data, and the insights that baseline assessments from Cambridge provide into a student’s skills and abilities. But we also know it can be challenging for busy teachers to interpret the results of an individual student in a wider context, without expending considerable time and effort.

In order to support schools and teachers to get the most out of our baseline assessments, we have developed a new feature for Cambridge Primary Insight – Teaching and Learning Guidance.

Instant Interpretation

The first phase of this exciting new development is Interpretation Guidance. Later, we will be releasing Guidance for Next Steps – giving suggestions for teaching and learning activities based on a child's performance, designed to empower them to make a difference for each student.

Interpretation Guidance is available now on individual student reports, for Cambridge Primary Insight Plus users. The system automatically provides clear, instantaneous and personalised interpretation of results for that student, in each of the five modules of the assessment:

  • Reading
  • Spelling
  • Mathematics
  • Arithmetic
  • Developed Ability

Interpretation Guidance saves time and effort for busy teachers, and provides objective, evidence-based statements about the student’s performance in comparison to other learners of the same age. Perfect for starting conversations with parents, for using in individual learning plans, and as a benchmark for measuring progress.

Simplified Pricing

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Our cohort fees have been replaced by product fees and we’ve broadened our student number tiers, ensuring that smaller schools or those with fewer resources are better able to use CEM assessments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.
