Supplementary tests

Supplementary tests in English for pupils at Vg1 (16-17 years old)

Main content

Supplementary tests can be used as a tool for continuous assessment and can give teachers material for constructive feedback to students at all levels. The tests are voluntary and the school is free to decide when they want to take the tests. Pupils can take each test only once.


The supplementary tests of English for VG1 are developed by the language test team at the Institute for Foreign Languages at UiB.

The tests are digital and measure listening, reading and use of language. A teachers' guide has been developed, which gives advice about how the tests can be used and how to follow up the results with pupils.
