Administration LVS BES

On this page you will find information needed for administering the tests of the LVS BES (student monitoring system for Bonaire, Sint Eustatius and Saba) for the languages Dutch as a Foreign Language (NVT) and English.

Scheduling tests

It is important to schedule when and which tests will be administered at your school during the testing period. The digital Reading and Listening test is administered in the classroom. The Writing paper test is also administered in the classroom. The Speaking test is administered individually (teacher and student).

Example of testing period LVS BES (Reading, Listening, Writing, Speaking1) by language2 

Day 1 Day 2
1 lesson for Reading 1 lesson for Listening
1 lesson for Writing

The speaking tests are administered individually. Therefore we advise to spread those tests over a longer period of time/multiple lessons.

2 If a student has to take tests for Dutch as a Foreign Language and English, you should spread the tests over more than two days.

All information about the tests can be found in the Test Administration Manual.

Preparing for the tests

We recommend taking a look at the sample tests with your students in class the week before the tests. Your students can also do these sample tests themselves. The sample tests consist of a limited number of questions so that your students can get used to the method of questioning and answering.

There are sample tests NVT and English for the levels PreA1-A1 and A2-B1: online for Reading and Listening, on paper for Writing and Speaking. In these sample tests two levels are combined, the ‘real’ tests consist of one level.

Let your students make a sample test that corresponds with the level you want to test.

You can find the required Reading Text booklets and Writing and Speaking Test booklets on the online LVS BES test platform.


Please note! The material of LVS BES may not be made public. This applies both before and after the test. Students are not allowed to take the test books home.
