Abstract

The system for remote assessment of knowledge automates formation of task (tickets) with questions and tasks for conducting intermediate and final monitoring of knowledge of students is offered. In the process of developing an electronic system for knowledge assessment, the basic requirements for a web application and the modules that the system consists of were determined, the main roles of users in the system and their functionality were identified, access rights were established. The technical, functional, and non-functional features of the software product are described, web technologies for creating an application for knowledge assessment are considered. The diagram of system sequences, the use-case diagram, which schematically describing roles and functions of agents in an information system, the diagram of classes of a database structure are presented with UML description. Based on the defined requirements for the resource in cloud-based learning environment, the following technologies for its development were chosen: the server programming language PHP, JavaScript programming language and its libraries were used, as well as the MySQL database with PhpMyAdmin tool for administration of chosen database management system. OpenServer software complex system was used to develop and test the application functionality. The usage of the proposed electronic assessment system of knowledge contributes to the formation of an open information and cloud-based learning environment of a modern educational institution, enhances the efficiency and more rational distribution of teacher time in preparing tests or exams, activates repetition of educational material and knowledge assimilation, indirectly motivates students to more honest learning.
