Dutch proficiency test

B1 Dutch proficiency test helps you find top Dutch speakers

The Dutch (Intermediair/B1) test will help you evaluate candidates’ fluency in the Dutch language.

It’s challenging to find candidates who have not only expertise in Dutch but also the business knowledge needed to succeed in the role. On top of that, multiple factors negatively impact the recruitment process, making it even more difficult to find the right applicants:

A limited candidate pool. Even though companies are receiving more applications for open positions than ever before, there’s a massive shortage of quality applicants in these large candidate pools. The ease with which candidates can apply for open roles has enabled many of them to take a “shotgun approach,” applying to many positions without looking at the requirements in detail and hoping that one of their applications will bring positive results. The current market is deeply lacking quality applicants relative to the size of the candidate pool, and organizations are struggling to find the talent they need to manage growth efficiently.

Hiring bias. The hiring process is prone to multiple unconscious biases. From the halo effect to confirmation bias, various biases affect hiring managers’ hiring decisions. It’s not uncommon to see false positives – when a hiring manager thinks a candidate is a good match for the role when, in fact, they’re not. Bias can also result in many false negatives that cause candidates who are actually qualified for the role to be rejected.

The unreliability of resumes. Last but not least, most hiring processes rely too heavily on resumes to assess applicants’ skills. Most candidates aren’t evaluated based on their ability to handle the tasks they would complete in the role but rather their ability to write a good resume. That’s why there’s such a significant mismatch between candidates’ resumes and their actual skill set.

Fortunately, you can solve all of these problems by using a pre-employment test like the Dutch (Intermediair/B1) test.

Evaluate critical language skills with this Dutch (Intermediair/B1) test

With the Dutch (Intermediair/B1) online skills-based test, you can evaluate your candidates’ abilities in the Dutch language. This pre-employment test will provide you with precise data on your candidates’ skills.

Our test is based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) and is designed to verify if candidates have B1-level skills in the Dutch language.

The test lasts for 10 minutes and assesses whether candidates have the four fundamental skills needed to understand and communicate effectively in Dutch:

Grammar. The grammar section of the Dutch (Intermediair/B1) test will evaluate if applicants know how to write in the Dutch language at the B1 level. It will verify whether the candidates can write their ideas clearly and coherently in Dutch.

Vocabulary and spelling. The test assesses candidates’ vocabulary and spelling to determine if they can form coherent and clear sentences in the Dutch language at the required level.

Leesbegrip. This part of the Dutch (Intermediair/B1) test requires applicants to decipher Dutch text. They will have to read and understand the meaning of simple sentences on familiar topics.

Luistervaardigheid. This is the most difficult part of learning any language. Candidates must be able to listen to native speakers and understand what they’re saying. They will need to understand various idioms and language complexities if they want to pass the listening comprehension part of the test.

The Dutch (Intermediair/B1) test will make it easy for you to gather data, evaluate if your candidates have a satisfactory skill level in the language, and make a data-driven hiring decision.

Candidates who do well on the test are suitable for roles like customer support agents, sales representatives, and other openings that require Dutch language knowledge at a B1 level.

FAQs

What is the difference between an assessment and a test?
An assessment is the total package of tests and custom questions that you put together to evaluate your candidates. Each individual test within an assessment is designed to test something specific, such as a job skill or language. An assessment can consist of up to 5 tests and 20 custom questions. You can have candidates respond to your custom questions in several ways, such as with a personalized video.
Can I add my own questions to an assessment?
Yes! Custom questions are great for testing candidates in your own unique way. We support the following question types: video, multiple-choice, coding, file upload, and essay. Besides adding your own custom questions, you can also create your own tests.
How do video questions work?
A video question is a specific type of custom question you can add to your assessment. Video questions let you create a question and have your candidates use their webcam to record a video response. This is an excellent way to see how a candidate would conduct themselves in a live interview, and is especially useful for sales and hospitality roles. Some good examples of things to ask for video questions would be "Why do you want to work for our company?" or "Try to sell me an item you have on your desk right now." You can learn more about video questions here.
Can you explain how the other custom question types work?
Besides video questions, you can also add the following types of custom questions: multiple-choice, coding, file upload, and essay. Multiple-choice lets your candidates choose from a list of answers that you provide, coding lets you create a coding problem for them to solve, file upload allows your candidates to upload a file that you request (such as a resume or portfolio), and essay allows an open-ended text response to your question. You can learn more about different custom question types here.
Can I customize an assessment with my company logo and color theme?
Yes! You can add your own logo and company color theme to your assessments. This is a great way to leave a positive and lasting brand impression on your candidates.
