National Tests of Foreign Languages

The Swedish National Agency for Education has commissioned the "Nafs" project at the University of Gothenburg to develop the national tests and other assessment materials in English, French, German and Spanish as foreign languages, that are used within the Swedish school system.

The materials are developed in close collaboration with large groups of teachers, students and researchers and are based on a set of general principles founded in extensive research. In addition to the task of producing tests and assessment materials, the members of the project are involved in teacher education, local school development, other national projects and extensive international networks.
