The TestDaf Institute

The creation of all test items, their correction, the development and organization of the tests are utilized worldwide by TestDaf Institutes. Both the central creation as well as the correction of the TestDaf examinations are subject to continuous quality control. The TestDaf Institute offers several exam dates during the year. The TestDaf Institute is legally and financially supported by the Society for Academic eV Test Development and receives advice on scientific matters from a board of directors. This process is simplified at German universities for foreign applicants, and thus helps to make German university more attractive. The first examinations were developed by a consortium and tested. The TestDaf Institute was founded in January 2001 in Copenhagen as the so-called An-Institute at the University of Hagen and at the Ruhr-University Bochum. The Institute is a member (observing member) of the Association of Language Testers in Europe (ALTE).
