It is possible to monitor training process using different statistic reports in learning management systems and massive open online course platforms. Online training process can be managed effectively by means of analytics applications. Analytics is based on gathered information. Problems can occur during information gathering if an online course contains complex open ended assignments, assignments which can’t be checked using tests. There are methods among the existing methods which allow to gather information effectively: situational assignment and special methods for specific domain. The methods allow to get reliable and complete information for management purposes. But the methods are not universal. Their usage is limited to open ended assignment type and domain. There is a need to develop a method for every specific task if situational assignment can’t be used and there is no special method. A universal information gathering method based on automated complex open ended assignments scoring with the use of error bank is suggested in the paper. A tool was developed and implemented in training process in Ufa state aviation technical university from 2013 till 2019. The usage of the method and the tool allowed to increase information gathering effectiveness in online training process management in complex open ended assignments implementation.
