MODEL AND ALGORITHM THAT OPTIMIZE THE CHOICE OF A TRAINING AREA AT A MULTI-PURPOSE TRAINING

UDC 681.3

V.V. Menshikh, E.N. Sereda


The article deals with the problem of how to optimize the distribution of students according to the areas of training in the groups of multi-purpose training. Training and retraining of professionals in fact presupposes facilitating the optimal individual educational trajectory for each specialist. There is a need to form groups of multi-purpose training since, on the one hand, certain training areas are unique and there is a lack of the pertinent categories of students, and on the other hand, related areas require similar training trajectories. It will contribute to saving resources of an educational institution and sometimes can increase the training efficacy. The training trajectories in such groups can overlap, which makes it possible to dynamically redirect students to subgroups that master different competences. When organizing a multi-purpose training the primary task is to choose the training area for each specialist, and the corresponding mathematical apparatus to optimize this task has not been studied sufficiently. This research carries out a mathematical approach to this problem. The article defines two stages of its solution: 1) assessing the perspectives of students to form competencies in accordance with the training areas; 2) finding an optimal way to distribute the trainees in the areas of training. The paper suggests an algorithm for solving the problem.

Keywords: : competence, the areas of training, training time, resource, optimization, a multi-purpose training.

Y.E. Lvovich, I.L. Kashirina, A.N. Schwindt


The article presents the results of neural network modeling of the interrelation between the indicators of monitoring the effectiveness of the activity of universities and monitoring of the employment of graduates. The proposed models provide an opportunity to predict the impact of certain indicators of the effectiveness of the university on changing conditions for the success of graduates and identify indicators that have the strongest impact on the effectiveness of the employment process. Since the employment of graduates is the resultant indicator of the educational activity of the university and one of the key indicators of its relevance, the problem solved in the article seems to be relevant. In the course of the study it was possible to build neural network models with a sufficiently high degree of reliability. At the same time, it was found that 57 indicators of monitoring the performance of HEIs are significant for forecasting the proportion of graduates who have found employment during the calendar year following the year of release, and only 3 monitoring indicators are significant for forecasting the average amount of monthly payments to graduates in the first year after graduation from the university effectiveness. Based on the results of the study, a conclusion was made about the impact of modeling results on the relationship between the indicators of employment monitoring and performance monitoring on adjusting management decisions and improving the educational activity of the university.

Keywords: : monitoring, evaluation, efficiency of the university, neural network, multilayer perceptron.

PROCESSING AND EVALUATION OF MONITORING RESULTS FOR MANAGEMENT OF THE DEVELOPMENT OF QUALITY EDUCATION CONDITIONS

UDC 681.3

A. N. Schwindt


The article reviews models and procedures for processing and evaluation of monitoring results, including student participation, focused on intellectual support of administrative managerial decisions when developing of conditions and corresponding resources for the achievement of applicable regulatory requirements for the quality of university education. The first stage of processing is normalization of factors which characterize the conditions for quality education, indicators of graduate employability and student-oriented monitoring. The next stage is aimed at building the models of integral evaluation of factors and indicators. With the chosen structure of a model in the form of additive convolution, a parametric identification procedure based on the comparison of results of neural network modeling, visual information and subsequent expert evaluation is proposed. Evaluation of monitoring results consists of ranking and clustering of higher education institutions on the basis of integral assessments of education quality. The sequence of steps in the clustering procedure, which determines probabilistic estimates with the use of expert’s views, according to which a great number of higher education institutions are divided into a given number of clusters, is described.

Keywords: : rationing, integral evaluation, additive convolution, ranking, clustering.

OPTIMIZATION OF TRAINING COMPONENTS IN THE FIELD OF OPERATION OF AIR TRANSPORT ON THE BASIS OF EXPERT ANALYSIS WITH ORIENTATION ON THE MODEL-ORIENTED APPROACH

UDC 681.3

A.S. Borzova

At present, the requirements to the quality of training of specialists are increasing, which determines the need to restructure the goals and content of training. The difficulties of constructing the optimal sequence of training lead to the need for a model of the content of training, which is a complex structure that includes the components of the system, as well as bilateral and multilateral ties between them. The content of the training is presented in the form of a hierarchical system, the basic task of which is to evaluate higher levels, taking into account the interaction of different levels of the hierarchy, and not directly dependent on the elements at these levels. Each element of the target tree under consideration is characterized by a coefficient of relative importance that determines the proportion of the contribution of this element to the achievement of a goal common to the whole system, which are determined using one of the expert methods, the paired comparison method. Based on the constructed goal tree, which forms the content of training, the main components of the learning process are developed. The sequence presented determines the fulfillment of all the most important requirements to the profile of training the specialist as a whole, as well as the preparation of the necessary base for studying any discipline. Formation of the optimal sequence of studying the components of educational programs is carried out on the basis of the implementation of the algorithm of optimization choice.

Keywords: content of training, learning elements, goal tree, matrix of logical connections, coefficients of relative importance.
