1 Introduction to CEM and the Baseline Tests Dr Robert Clark

2 Who / What is CEM ?

3 Centre for Evaluation & Monitoring Not for Profit Organisation Part of Durham University Close links to School of Education Established 1985 Nursery / Reception  Post-16 Monitoring Systems, Research and Evaluation Projects UK & International Over 1/3 Secondary & Post-16 Establishments Informed by Evidence from Research

4 CEM Provides Information Systems from Nursery to Post-16  Student Guidance & Chances  Performance Monitoring Evaluation & Research Projects Entrance Testing Support – Phone, , doccumentation Training INSET Roadshows Conferences (including exhibitions)

5 The Systems

6 Year 7 Year 8 Year 9 MidYIS Computer Adaptive Baseline Test Year 10 Year 11 Yellis Computer Adaptive Baseline Test Year 12 Year 13 Alis GCSE Computer Adaptive Baseline Test GCSE A / AS / Btec / IB etcINSIGHT Combines curriculum tests with developed ability KS3

7  The baseline score is measured as early as possible and the information sent to CEM  The institution then receives feedback from CEM: baseline test results and predictions  The public examination results are sent to CEM when received by the institution  The value added data is available from September via the Institution’s website at CEM Typical Timeline Early Testing & Predictions  Testing is available from June at end of previous academic year e.g. Y6 / Y9 / Y11

8 Basic Principles: Measure Student’s ability  Intake Profiles  IPR - Strengths and Weaknesses Project future performance from national trends  Predictions Record Final Grade Compare actual performance to Projected Performance  Value-Added Reports

9 Starting Up

10 Pre-16 Complete and return registration form  Paper for new schools  Online through secure website for renewals Organise Baseline Testing  Available from 1 st June (early testing) through to 30 th April  Upload pupil list via secure website  Set up web links to test (or download LAN version)  Test students (can be done over extended period) Download Feedback  Available within 2 hours of a student completing the test  Feedback updated as more students complete test

11 Secure Website - Secondary : Pre-16

17 Baseline Assessments of Developed Ability

18 Baseline Assessment Year 7 (8) Year 9 Year 10 (11) Year 12 (13+) Computer Adaptive Baseline Test VocabMathsNon Verbal

19 What is an Adaptive test ? All questions allocated to groups of different difficulty All students in a year group get common difficulty starting question If answer correct, next question harder If answer wrong, next question easier Test looks at all answers in a section and homes in on questions of a suitable difficulty for student Try it yourself at

21 Standardisation Test scores are standardised; Mean = 100, SD = 15 Standardised Score National Percentage Comment >130Top 2.5%Traditional classification of ‘mentally gifted’ >120Top 10% >100Top 50% <80Bottom 10% <70Bottom 2.5%Potential special educational needs ??

22 The Computer Adaptive Baseline Test: Adaptive components common to MidYIS, Yellis, and Alis are: – Vocabulary – Maths Non- adaptive sections: – Non-verbal (MidYIS, Yellis, Alis) – Skills (MidYIS only) Assessments are ‘curriculum free’: i.e. students are not taught prior to the test Measure of acquired ability There is no preparation for the test

23 Difficult vocabulary

24 Difficult maths x/4 + 2

25 Non-Verbal: Cross-sections

26 Non-Verbal: Blocks 3

27 Pictures Non-Verbal: Pictures

28 Skills: Proof Reading

29 Skills: Perceptual Speed and Accuracy

30 Alis - Patterns

31 Alis – Logical Reasoning

32 Additionally for INSIGHT: Developed Ability Vocabulary Non verbal, Skills Attitudinal measures Curriculum-based assessments covering: Maths - Number & Algebra - Handling Data - Space, Shape & Measurement Science - Biology, Chemistry, Physics, - Attitudes to Science Reading - Speed Reading - Text Comprehension - Passage Comprehension INSIGHT

33 INSIGHT - Maths 7

34

35 Plus Attitude to Science: Perception of Science, Relevance to Self, Environmental Actions, Enjoyment of Science INSIGHT - Science

36 INSIGHT – Reading (Text Comprehension)

37 INSIGHT – Reading (Passage Comprehension)

38 INSIGHT – Reading (Speed Reading)

39 INSIGHT – Developed Ability

40 Measuring Ability Key Stage Data or Baseline Test ?

41 Key Stage Baselines – KS2; GCSE StrengthsWeaknesses Related to curriculumDependent on teaching effectiveness (prior Value- Added) as well as student ability Automatically availableOpen to manipulation In DepthNot all students have KS data Linked to student learning experience Reliability of KS measure Consistency of KS score (i.e. GCSE & Btec First etc) Independent Baseline Test – CEM Adaptive Test
