Development of the Computer-Based Quality Control System Used for Training Specialists in Navigation

The paper presents the analysis of the objective computer-based quality control system intended for training specialists in marine navigation. This system of quality control has been applied at the Navigation and Ship Handling Department of Kyiv State Maritime Academy (KSMA) in the process of training the students of 2 - 4 proficiency levels. The informational and methodological computer-based assessment tool package for the students trained for Bachelor, Specialists and Master Degrees has been developed on the basis of the following constituents: (a) the system of control; (b) three e-textbooks on basic theoretical subjects; and (c) built-in matrix for self-assessment to verify the testing results. Both experimental and current implementation of the computer-based quality control system proved to be a reliable and objective assessment tool used for quality evaluation of training on basic theoretical subjects included into the curriculum during the whole course of studies. Saving time and reducing financial resources spent for carrying out control sessions are significant. The main advantage of the system has been its efficiency which currently demonstrates the serious increase of the competency level of the students in Navigation.
