Abstract:The development of the present information society provides prerequisites for the occurrence of information changes, not only on ways of providing knowledge but also on methods for effective evaluation. In the field of higher education, it is known that the assessment methods are chosen by the lecturer, leading the discipline. It is accepted that learners should be tested in two ways verbally and in writing. In the written test are increasingly used tests and preparation of course project. Widely is introduced the e-testing (by the e-mail, with electronic test systems, by creating randomly generated electronic tests, etc.).
This paper carries out a comparative analysis between two models in the training process by evaluating the acquired competencies. These are the model of double-checking the knowledge and training model with rapid testing of the learners, realized with the participation of an automated system for knowledge verification. The applied methodology is carried out through a theoretical-applied analysis and statistical processing of the collected results. The analysis of the received data collected by the empirical studies gives insight into the effectiveness of each of the models. The purpose of the report is to choose an optimal model for assessment of knowledge in the process of acquiring competencies, consistent with the specifics of the studied discipline.
Keywords: Information society, Competency testing system, Training, Evaluation, Effectiveness, Learning Process.
