What we do

We develop and deliver examinations and tests around the world through our three exam boards. We also provide research and consultancy services in a range of associated disciplines and we have a comprehensive calendar of events and seminars which you are welcome to attend.

Our activity is largely described in two categories; delivering assessment and influencing thinking.

Delivering excellence in assessment

The reliability of our assessments stems from evidence-based and research-led approaches. Our exam boards deliver tests, qualifications and associated services that are valued and recognised by universities, employers, governments, immigration authorities, professional bodies and education providers around the world. Our key capabilities include: assessment and test design; curriculum development; monitoring and evaluation; quality assurance in assessment; and teacher and trainer development.

Our exam boards are:

Influencing thinking

We have the largest research capability of its kind in Europe, with more than 60 researchers who pioneer the latest techniques and evaluate current assessments. In addition to our work in assessment delivery and development, we also influence, advise and guide on all aspects of education policy and strategy around the world. We use our expertise in assessment to stimulate debate in important areas and help to shape thinking.

The areas of Cambridge Assessment mainly dedicated to research and consultancy are:
