Abstract

This paper shows the features of using the Microsoft Forms for assessing knowledge in students. Based on the results of testing, it was concluded that it is advisable to apply this solution for testing in higher educational institutions.
Testing at the beginning of the class on the material of the previous lecture or topic will show which points should be reminded to students or explained. Conversely, testing conducted at the end of the lecture will show an instant assessment of how students understood this topic. This will allow the teacher to identify the general level of students’ preparation for the perception of new material. In addition, having analyzed the results of this assessment, the teacher will be able to adjust the level and volume of the new material, as well as to change the tactics of delivering it to the listener.
For implementation in the teaching and learning activities and the use of Microsoft Forms on a regular basis, it is necessary to have the appropriate infrastructure. In this case, the best for the teacher is the use of a computer, since it is easier to work with several data streams on it and it is more convenient to analyze various forms of presenting student test results. For the students themselves, a smartphone with access to the Internet is enough.
