CEMO is a research unit at UiO's Faculty of Education which contributes to development of national and international competence within the field of educational measurement. The centre conducts applied research within the fields of early childhood education, primary, secondary and higher education, as well as basic research within the field of educational measurement. Through its research activities, CEMO develops and disseminates methodological knowledge to relevant stakeholders in the sector of education.
CEMO is in its area of competence an advisor to, amongst others, the Norwegian Ministry of Education and Research and the Norwegian Directorate for Education and Training as well as to a broad range of international units. Norwegian institutions linked to the field of educational measurement have the possibility to ask for advice with respect to fundamental methodological challenges. Note though that CEMO is primarily a research unit. Operational work on technical questions exceeds the scope of the centre’s time resources.
In collaboration with the other departments at the Faculty of Educational Sciences, CEMO trains candidates at the master- and doctoral levels. A Master in Assessment and Evaluation is under development and will start in August 2018.
