The Hogeschooltaal Assessment Service arranges the entire development, administering and marking process of tests for you.
Hogeschooltaal maintains and continually updates an extensive assessment database of summative tests. These are developed on the basis of a test matrix, which satisfies academic standards. There are summative tests for Dutch at 3F and 4F level and for English at the CEFR levels B1, B2 and C1.
Needless to say, you can also use the tests as a formative assessment tool.
The intake assessment gives you a clear picture of your students’ initial level. Additional benefit: students become aware of their true level. In practice, 68% of students do not (or no longer) reach the required intake level. Students who will use the learning module are presented with a learning and exercise package based on the results of the intake assessment.
Please note: the intake assessment is not a summative test.
Intake assessments are free for degree programmes that use Hogeschooltaal or that are considering doing so. All students can take part, even if they haven’t (yet) ordered a teaching module.
Formative and summative tests cost € 6,- per student per language or € 9,- for both languages. These are the costs for the university of applied sciences. For the above price, the university of applied sciences can allow students to take each test as often as desired for a period of five years.
You don’t need to take our word for it – read what our users say.
“I’m really happy with Hogeschooltaal’s independent study approach! This programme helps students learn languages in a fun and effective way. Every degree programme should invest in it!”
Lecturer Fontys University of Applied Sciences
“I’m happy with the Hogeschooltaal team (just as in previous years). For example, our questions are always answered correctly or investigated for us and the team is easy to reach (including during tests). In short, a great partnership!”
Lecturer Arnhem and Nijmegen University of Applied Sciences
“For me, Hogeschooltaal is a great guide to better language teaching! With Hogeschooltaal, I see that students’ language proficiency improves. Seeing that every practice session improves their proficiency also motivates them. It’s a good standard foundation!”
Lecturer The Hague University of Applied Sciences
