CAE’s assessments for secondary and higher education are designed to measure students’ critical thinking, problem-solving and written communication skills regardless of their field of study. These skills are necessary not only for academic success, but also for success in the workplace and life outside the classroom. Our online assessments include real-world scenarios and documents that reflect an authentic situation. No prior knowledge is necessary to perform well.
A 30-minute Selected-Response Question (SRQ) section is included in the assessments which contains three types of questions: Data Literacy (DL), Critical Reading and Evaluation (CRE), and Critiquing an Argument (CA). The SRQs ask the student to choose the best response based on the information provided.
