Dear Parents and Guardians
At Sha Tin College, our students regularly complete Cognitive Ability Tests through the UK based “CEMs” Suite. We use these assessments to help us in providing support to guide your child towards achievable goals as they continue with their Secondary School education. The assessments are designed to measure aptitude for learning, rather than current attainment and are composed of four areas; Vocabulary; Mathematics; Non Verbal; Skills.
These assessments will be completed with your child as part of the induction sessions on Thursday 19th / Friday 20th August. Students will be required to bring their fully charged laptop and a pencil. No other equipment is required. It is not expected that students complete any revision or preparation for these assessments.
You can find out more information about these assessments by going to https://www.cem.org/ If you have further questions please feel free to contact me.
