EVALUATIE TUSSENTIJDSE TOETS. EVALUATIE VAN EEN PROEF MET EEN TUSSENTIJDSE TOETS IN DE RIJOPLEIDING TER VOORBEREIDING OP HET RIJEXAMEN, GEHOUDEN IN DE PROVINCIES NOORD-BRABANT EN LIMBURG

During the 'Interim Assessment', candidate drivers are tested on what they have learned during the course of instruction while at the same time being prepared for their 'real' driving test. This is done at the request of the driving instructor. The 'Interim Assessment' was introduced and evaluated on a trial basis in the Dutch provinces of North Brabant and Limburg. The purposes of the evaluation were: (1) to assess the 'Interim Assessment' impact on pass rates; and (2) to examine the expectations, motivation and experiences of candidate drivers, instructors and examiners who had or had not decided to take part in the 'Interim Assessment'. The study also examined the extent of selective participation in the 'Interim Assessment' among candidate drivers and driving schools. Based on the findings of the study, it was recommended that the 'Interim Assessment' should be introduced throughout the rest of the Netherlands on a trial basis. However, its effects should continue to be registered due to the fact that only a limited number of candidate drivers took part in the trial scheme. Therefore, the conclusions of the study have limited applicability.
