USE OF MOODLE-BASED INFORMATIONAL TECHNOLOGIES FOR TEST TASKS ANALYSIS
AbstractActive implementation of the education controlling systems into the educational process stipulates the realization of automatic control of the level of students’ training. In such circumstances, there arises an opportunity to explore integrated means which can be used to evaluate the quality of testing materials. An overview of embedded functions of the Moodle system for test analysis according to statistical characteristics is presented in the article. Empirical studies of the test on a representative sample of test takers help to evaluate the informativity of tasks. The test is formed by such a system of tasks which provides informative assessment of the level and quality of students’ training. Characteristics of the test as a means of pedagogical measuring show the dependence of informational content of the test on the characteristics of test tasks and on the level of students’ training. The work with the "Statistics" module is considered in detail. Pedagogical potential of built-in LMS Moodle services and their use in the educational measurement theory is shown.
