In order to provide your school with value-added progress reports from the Pre-16 assessments, copies of your GCSE (and IGCSE) entries and results are needed as soon as possible.
To make things simpler, and to reduce the number of returns you need to make to CEM, you can now submit your entries and results files at the same time.
You only need to submit your entries and results files to us once, even if you use more than one of the Pre-16 systems. (Please note: Pre and Post 16 examination results are collected separately – if you have Post 16 results to return these will need to be submitted through the Alis+/CEM IBE+ secure site).
We will provide analysis for subjects where we have received sufficient and well-distributed results from a number of schools, and where the relationship between the baseline test and the subject results is considered strong enough.
Wherever possible, we will provide separate value-added analyses for IGCSE subjects. If the sample is not big enough for us to be able to offer this, IGCSEs will be analysed with their corresponding or closest matching GCSE.
Value Added on results day
CEM now provides value-added progress reports on results day – in most cases your reports will be produced on the same day you upload your results to CEM.
