The interuniversity Progress Test in Medicine is a measuring instrument consisting of about 200 test items, to measure the development of medical students’ knowledge during their studies. The Progress Test consists of 4 tests per academic year. Future versions of the Progress Test will likely be based on computerised administration of the test. One of the main goals of the Progress Test is to counter the so-called ‘learningto-the-test’ effect. Additional benefits are that students and teachers get detailed feedback about command of knowledge and where omissions in knowledge or the curriculum exist at multiple institutions. A Progress Test for dental education in the Netherlands can easily be conceived because the goals of the Progress Test fit well with the common framework (Raamplan Tandheelkunde) shared among the current three dental programmes. The current ‘Overalltoets’ (general test) of ACTA (academic centre for dentistry Amsterdam) could form a foundation for starting a Progress Test for dental education.
