Online diagnostic study aptitude tests are a common means of helping students select the correct type of course, and the correct mode of education. However, universities often lack the data to predict critical student success factors correctly. In this paper we discuss the development of an online entrance test for a university in the Netherlands, offering courses to international students. Aim of the test is to help future students decide on the mode of education (face-to-face or distance learning). Besides the development of the entrance test we also discuss its first results and future analysis to be conducted.
