Frontier Research in Educational Measurement (FREMO)
FREMO serves to build up an internationally recognizable profile in the field of educational measurement, and address issues of specific relevance for measurement in the Norwegian context.

About the group
FREMO was established in 2018 to create an arena for research in educational measurement at the University of Oslo. Hosted by the Centre for Educational Measurement (CEMO), the research group FREMO creates a structure that supports the prioritised areas of research identified in the CEMO mission statement:
Move the field of educational measurement forward
Cover the full cycle of educational measurement
Bring substantive and methodological experts together
Address research or methods biases
Much of the research at CEMO is organized through externally and internally funded projects. There are intersections between these projects through joint methodological challenges. The research group will become our main strategical response to facilitate the mutual exchange of ideas and to establish environments for continuous joint discussions across the projects and across different units of the Faculty of Educational Sciences.
The activities of the research group are organized through joint events and through events in four separate strands:
- Modern test design
- Statistical methods for innovative assessments
- International large-scale assessment
- Educational measurement in the Norwegian context
