THE FEDERAL INTERNET-EXAMINATION IN HIGHER EDUCATION OF THE RUSSIAN FEDERATION

In 2005 the National Accreditation Agency of the Russian Federation (NAA) introduced the Federal Internet-examination in higher education (the Internet-exam project).Basically, the Internet-exam is a nation-wide computer testing of students conducted in a great number of higher education institutions (HEIs) across the country at the same time. The unified national base of tests and unified methodology for analyzing and interpreting results ensure the comparability of achievements between similar educational programs in different HEIs.Students training quality is viewed as its compliance with the State Educational Standards (SES) of the Russian Federation, which define the very basic, minimum requirements for the contents of courses taught in particular educational programs.The Internet-exam follows the Bologna principles providing HEIs with the means to demonstrate quality of students’, training. It helps HEIs in establishing quality management systems based on the external independent review. Furthermore, it gives HEIs an opportunity to prepare for an obligatory testing procedure accompanying the accreditation process in Russia.Nowadays about half of Russian HEIs and their branches (1623 out of 3592) have taken part in the project at least once.The paper gives details on ideas and principles behind the Internetexam and the place it occupies in the higher education system of the Russian Federation.
