Abstract

Continuing change of quality requirements in engineering education makes it necessary to substantially reform the educational process in technical universities. This change should be built on the basis of identifying the conditions in which the competences of the future professionals can be formed and developed. Effective implementation of these processes requires continuous monitoring of the learning outcomes. But traditional final control, which is still widely used in the higher educational institutions, is insufficient and does not allow applying corrections in the learning process in a timely manner. The resolution of this contradiction can be made possible by introducing an accumulative rating system (ARS) to evaluate students academic performance, using weighting factors, records of timing labor costs and modified website to host individual learning outcomes. This study deals with the application of the above mentioned tools for assessing students academic learning outcomes in the teaching of social and arts disciplines at polytechnic university.
