Development and extensive use of virtual laboratories (VLs) in various subject domains is a really actual practical task of our time. Universal platforms such as Unity, OpenSim as well as object-oriented and web-oriented high-level languages (C, Java, PHP) are used for VLs implementation. A significant progress has already been achieved in simulation (modeling) of real-world objects and systems, in providing a trainee’s interface, as well as in forming a bank of exercises and tasks. But the task of trainees’ actions assessment in VLs has not yet been solved in its full completeness. The goals of this research work are: to develop a mathematical model of a virtual laboratory, which includes a complex of computer-based simulation systems of measuring devices; to develop a method of trainee’s actions assessment in a virtual laboratory; to realize and integrate a virtual laboratory into the learning process.
