A CONCEPT OF ONLINE AUTOMATED TRAINING PROCESS MANAGEMENT IN IMPLEMENTING COMPLEX OPEN ENDED ASSIGNMENTS BASED ON THE USE OF ERROR BANK
Online learning is widely distributed. This type of learning can take place at specific university by means of learning management system or by means of massive open online course platforms independently of universities. Management problems arise in existing training systems if a training course contains assignments, result of implementation of which cannot be checked by standard tests. This relates to knowledge and skills assimilation management and to training process management. A class of assignments which causes difficulties in online learning and training management (complex open ended assignments) is described in the paper. A concept of online automated training process management based on the use of error bank in implementing such tasks is suggested. The concept is based on system and process management approach, classification of errors made by students during complex open ended assignment implementation, the principle of management subsidiarity, automated training. Using of a specific software package, which contains software modules for automated scoring, information collection and processing, decision making, on a par with learning management systems with functionality of the automated training is proposed to increase the effectiveness of management.
