Abstract

In order to be admitted to a Dutch university, foreign students have to take a Dutch proficiency test. It is argued by one of the Dutch universities that this proficiency can be demonstrated by a single type of test: a multiple-choice cloze test. This position is accounted for by concurrent validation and is justified by the efficiency criterion. In the present article this concurrent validity is questioned and it is argued that other considerations should play a role as well in evaluating tests, the results of which have far reaching consequences for individuals.
