The purpose of the assessment instrument for Sign Language of the Netherlands (TNGT) was to develop a standardized language test for deaf children in primary education in the Netherlands. This test was developed as part of a five year project (starting in 2001), and built on an early  assessment project on Sign Language of the Netherlands (SLN; Jansma , Knoors, & Baker, 1997). This SLN assessment instrument tests both receptive and expressive skills (Hermans, Knoors, & Verhoeven, 2010). The assessment instrument for SLN can be considered as an instrument for in-depth investigation across different domains of language. The target group for this test is deaf children 4-12 years old.
