dc.description.abstractThis study investigates criterion validity and reliability of the Recognition Based Vocabulary Test format, as well as its applicability in case of close L1-L2 proximity. Two versions of an RBVT for German were tested, one excluding items cognate with their Dutch equivalents, and the other containing 50% German-Dutch cognates. Scores on the RBVT and a criterion test were compared for native speakers of Dutch and a further, international group of participants. Results suggest that while linguistic proximity does appear to have an adverse effect on RBVT reliability and its criterion correlation, this cannot be attributed to the presence of cognates in the test.
