The Center for Educational Measurement, Inc. (CEM) marked its 36th anniversary with a series of fora held in different venues nationwide, from September to October 2014. CEM member schools and other special guests were treated to a half-day of sharing of insights, practices and experiences on utilizing test data.

Dr. Lenore Ll. Decenteceo, CEM and IAEA president, welcomed delegates to the 40th Annual IAEA conference held in Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel, Singapore. The conference was held in May 2014. It was hosted by the Singaporean Examinations and Assessment Board (SEAB), which develops and conducts national examinations in Singapore.

CEM has rolled out the K to 12 ready tests to coincide with DepEd's implementation of the new curriculum. These tests contain more reports on how the students measure up to the prescribed competencies. 

Philippine Aptitude Test for Teachers (PATT) was used to screen applicants to the 1000 Teachers Program. It is a scholarship program of the Philippine Business for Education, an NGO advocating education reform. 


CEM once again handed out the gold and silver medals for this year's recipients of the Philippine Merit Award for Scholastic Potential (PMASP). Since 1985, CEM has been recognizing the performance of high school students who landed at the top 1% and 2% among the College Scholastic Aptitude Test (CSAT) examinees.


For 35 years now, the Center for Educational Measurement (CEM) has been providing testing services for the evaluation and assessment needs of both the private and public education sectors in the Philippines.

CEM joined the 39th Annual International Association for Educational Assessment Conference (IAEA) in Tel Aviv, Israel last Oct. 20-25, 2013. The conference offers a global forum for all those involved in all forms of educational assessment – in primary or secondary schools, colleges or the workplace.
