DESIGN, ANALYSIS AND IMPLEMENTATION OF ELECTRONIC TEST FOR KNOWLEDGE EVALUATION IN THE COURSE OF INFORMATION TECHNOLOGIES FOR PHARMACEUTICAL STUDENTS
The increased usage of information technologies in everyday life and especially in education leads to demands for new forms of teaching, studying and the appropriate examination and evaluation of acquired knowledge and skills of the students.
Modern electronic educational systems use only those technologies that improve the learning process and make it more effective. Interactive education provides an opportunity to develop skills for independent literature research and activation of cognitive activity.
In this work, it is shown how modern electronic education is implemented in the curriculum of English language pharmaceutical students at the Medical University – Plovdiv in the course of Information Technologies. It is developed with a methodological approach of a hybrid system, i.e. compulsory attendance at lectures in combination with two different types of conduction of the final test for comparison – a paper-based test and a remote web-based one. The results received from the parallel tests are processed and analyzed and the conclusions are used to enhance the quality of the developed test and the type of implementation. Moreover, the examined students fill in an anonymous poll to show the authors their thoughts for this type of hybrid educational system.
