The Test Structure

onSET is a test with six gap-filling tests.
These are short texts where some words have some letters missing. The missing letters are represented by an underscore to make a gap. Each text has 20 gaps that participants must fill correctly. Here is an example:Beispiel
Timing is important. Participants have five minutes per text to fill in the gaps. After this, they are moved on to the next text. They can also move sooner to the next text. It is not possible to go back.
One point is given for each correctly filled gap. A maximum of 120 points can be achieved. The result is shown after all six texts have been completed. Participants see their total score (between 0 and 120 points), the percentage they have completed correctly and their level of language proficiency on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).
