Yleiset kielitutkinnot – the National Certificate of Language Proficiency – is an examination system for adults which comprises tests in several languages, including Finnish. The test in Finnish as a Second Language has been developed in response to the need to assess the Finnish skills of an increasing number of immigrants and refugees. The development of the National Certificate is a joint non-profit project between the University of Jyväskylä and the Finnish National Board of Education, which supplies educational development, evaluation and information services to policy makers, teachers, owners and managers of schools.
