Cambridge Assessment and Cambridge University Press have jointly acquired Durham University's renowned Centre for Evaluation and Monitoring (CEM).
CEM is one of the largest and longest established research groups providing formative assessments for children of all ages and is used by education professionals in over 70 countries around the world. A not-for-profit organisation, CEM joins the Cambridge family following the successful conclusion of a consultation with employees. The CEM team will remain in the North East of England but work closely with new colleagues in Cambridge and around the world.
Saul Nassé, Chief Executive of Cambridge Assessment, said: “CEM’s expertise in formative assessment is a great fit for Cambridge. Bringing our organisations together will enable us to do more to further education around the world.”
Peter Phillips, Chief Executive of Cambridge University Press, said: “It gives us great pleasure to welcome our new colleagues at CEM to the Cambridge family. We look forward to seeing the collaboration between our different teams develop as together we help students and teachers in their learning.”
Emma Beatty, Executive Director of CEM, said: “We have achieved some amazing things during our time at Durham, and we are incredibly excited about the opportunity we now have to build on this, together with our new colleagues at Cambridge Assessment and Cambridge University Press.”
We want to hear from you about how you use data in your school to measure progress, and to discuss the challenges you face using data to support improvement.
Join us on Tuesday 14th August, at Hatfield College, Durham University, for a discussion starting at 10 am, followed by lunch and a tour of Durham Castle. You don’t need to use CEM assessments to be able to join the discussion.
As a thank you for sharing your views with us, we’ll also give each participant a £50 Amazon voucher.
