Accurately measuring a student’s potential and progress can transform learning and help you make informed decisions about individual learners, their educational needs and where to focus your teaching efforts.
Many of our schools use the Cambridge Primary testing structure to assess learner performance and report progress to students and parents. Our assessments are optional, so you can use them in any combination to suit your context, culture and ethos.
Cambridge CEM’s computer-based assessments for 5-11 year olds help you identify and diagnose learning needs, measuring and benchmarking learners’ potential. The baseline and diagnostic assessments adapt to each student’s level, accurately and quickly identifying their abilities in core academic skills.
The tests measure learners’ aptitude in core skills and because they are computer-based, results are provided automatically.
We encourage you to assess some subjects in the classroom through discussion, observation and lesson outputs.
We provide Assessment guidance for subjects to help you give formative feedback on the skills you want learners to develop so that they can reflect on, and improve their performance.
Assessment guidance is included in your programme fee – there is no extra charge.
Cambridge Primary Progression Tests are internal assessments that help you to check learners’ knowledge, skills and understanding. Available for our core subjects, English as a first or second language, mathematics and science, progression tests are marked by teachers in your school and available for stages 3, 4, 5 and 6.
Cambridge Primary Checkpoint monitors individual and group performance at the end of the primary programme. These external tests are marked by Cambridge International to give you extra confidence in the feedback you receive and share with parents.
“The big difference comes with the level at which Cambridge subjects are assessed, the rigorous assessment methodology and the ease at which educators can continually track student progress.”
