Explanation:
SEM: standard error of measurement

Al menos así se usa en estadística y en medición para referirse al porcentaje de error que se debe al instrumento o a las condiciones en que se realiza la medición.

Explanation:
+/- SEM is a common way of expressing that there may be a variation of +/- that amount in the result. Often used with measurement scales, when giving scores, etc.

See this reference:

"Standard Error of Measurement (SEM): The amount an observed score is expected to fluctuate around the true score. For example, the obtained score will not differ by more than plus or minus one standard error from the true score about 68% of the time. About 95% of the time, the obtained score will differ by less than plus or minus two standard errors from the true score.

The SEM is frequently used to obtain an idea of the consistency of a person’s score or to set a band around a score. Suppose a person scores 110 on a test where the S.D. = 20 and [equation] = .91. Then:etc. etc."
