Abstract:The advent of modern ICT has enhanced the process of automation of activities that emerged in the era of industrial society. Gradually, more and more activities are taken over by computers making human intervention squeezed to a periodic operability check of the same constructed system. In the educational system and the process of training, the automation of the test generation process at the stage of creating the test questions and facilitating the intellectual efforts made by lecturers are still insufficiently developed. The issue stems from the lack of an integrated automated system for testing what has been learned whereby the manual job of the lecturers in creating test questions can be replaced by an automated one. A way to neutralize the existing inconvenience in the process of learning is the development of a special system for generating tests.
The current paper represents an automated system for generating and checking tests through the use of templates, which suggests an accelerated generation of exam questions as well as economizing on the precious time of lecturers. The introduction and implementation of such a system provides a progressive generation of a sufficient number of exam questions, which will help prepare individual tests for the participants in the learning process. Research has shown that the integration of the system into the process of testing the knowledge that has been acquired enhances to a great extent the time for generating individual exam tests for each student.
