For an experiment, I want to assess the proficiency of L2 learners of Swedish (with proficiency levels probably ranging from A2 to B2, as those are the levels of the courses they will be enrolled in). However, valid and reliable multilevel L2 Swedish proficiency tests seem to be rather scarce (both in regard to tests that attempt to test specific aspects of L2 proficiency such as vocabulary or reading and in regard to tests that attempt to test all aspects of L2 proficiency). So far, my list consists of the Swedish DIALANG test and the placement test of the Swedish Open University (Folkuniversitetet). Any additions to this list are more than welcome via margot.fonteyneugent.be .
