checkbox returns boolean instead of given value

I have several checkboxes in my reactive form. Each checkbox has a value argument. When I check the box, not the given value (here "testwert") goes to my form, but the boolean TRUE. When I uncheck the box, the value in my form is the boolean FALSE. Initially the form value is an empty string.
<ejs-checkbox formControlName="test" value="testwert" label="test"></ejs-checkbox>
Am I doing anything wrong here?

Thank you.

Hi Michael, 
Good day to you.
We have checked the reported issue in our checkbox. By default, the angular reactive form will return the Boolean type for checkboxes during form submit.
We have created a sample using angular reactive form for getting the selected checkbox values on form submit. Please refer the below sample link.
If we misunderstood your requirement, please share more details about this. So that we can work on this and provide you a better solution quickly.

Thank you.
If this is the only way to get the "real" value, it would help if this would be documented.
