Об обеспечении интероперабельности программных средств поддержки тестирования в образовании
Nowadays the computer adaptive testing plays the main role in massive educational testing. This partly causes the growing interest to computerized forms of testing. In its turn, data transfer between item banks and test systems has become the topic of high actuality this last few years. This paper address questions about the interoperability of educational testing systems. The most popular text and XML-formats of the test questions (including rapidly developed QTI/APIP) were studied. The review of existing converters demonstrated that there is no freely accessed converter, which supports several questions’ types, has adequate Russian interface or allows internationalization, and offers authoring tools for the questions of different types. Consequently, the architectural and functional software requirements on test questions’ converter were determined and listed. As a result, the paper presents the web-API prototype, which was design and implemented according to collected requirements.
