This article explores the problem of introducing score and rating system for assessment of students’ progress to the education process in the higher education institutions of the engineering realm of study. The authors analyze the experience of score and rating system implementation based on the Far Eastern Federal University. The authors have built profiles of respondents and carried out analysis of perception and viability of score and rating system.
