Abstract

The article deals with the effectiveness of testing as a method of pedagogical control of the professional knowledge of future specialists with higher education. The purpose of the article is to describe the advantages and disadvantages of mass control technologies, the reasons of weak development of pedagogical testing in domestic practice, to give recommendations for a partial solving the problems with the introduction of pedagogical testing. Methods. The authors implement the purpose with the help of such methods as analysis, comparison, generalization, systematization, testing. The results. The authors state that with the paradigm shift in education the main role in controlling the student’s knowledge was shifted to testing, which gave us the possibility to reduce a teacher’s workload and reduce the time for the process of knowledge control itself, as well as to activate the process of self-control among students. The authors emphasize that due to the modern requirements for professional knowledge of future specialists with higher education, they must have an advanced level of information culture and skills to work with printed and electronic source of information, systematize and interpret the professional information which they have obtained during the reading task. There is a description of two insights as for the advantages and disadvantages of mass control technologies in the article. The reasons of weak development of pedagogical testing in domestic practice have been also described. The recommendations for a partial solving the problems with the introduction of pedagogical testing have been given. Conclusions. The article deals with a method of problem solving of education management efficiency. It’s considered as a minimization of time to achieve the advanced level of success in a particular topic. In addition, the mathematical description of the success function and the function of time-consuming have been given in the article. Due to these, a method of minimizing training time for proving the required level of success has been obtained. The article suggests also a description of the applying of a given model for the education structure adaptive management, which saves the substantial time and teacher’s workload without losing the quality of learning material. The authors make an attempt to define the reasons for the absence of testing at the Ukrainian educational services market.
