dc.description.abstractIn this paper, we present the two standardised tests of Norwegian for adult immigrants in Norway; Test i norsk – høyere nivå, developed by Norsk språktest, and Norskprøven for voksne innvandrere, developed by Skills Norway, the main focus being on Norskprøven, with which both authors are involved. We briefly introduce the tests and the assessment practice and policy in Norway, and the challenges we see for assessment policy in our country. To conclude, we express our concern towards an integration policy where more and stricter requirements are introduced, a development that we fear may lead to segregation and alienation rather than to integration.
