CEM is the Centre of Evaluation & Monitoring at Durham University. They develop assessments based on research to improve teaching and testing for children. The tests measure verbal, numerical and non-verbal skills.
It contains two, 45 minute papers ( Paper 1 and Paper 2). Within each paper are various sections timed individually. The paper is a test for speed as well as accuracy. Challenging vocabulary tests them on their extending reading and knowledge.
We run a series of CEM Mock Exams from June. These tests will offer the child a platform to experience examination conditions. The results give the teachers and parent a better understanding of strength and weaknesses to ensure they fine tune and ensure learning is all wrapped up before the exam.
