Day by day information technologies widely spread on learning processes. Consequently, a number of the information systems such as learning management systems, platforms for online education grow too. The measuring of learning progress is an important part of the educational process, thus different testing services were developed — some of them are part of learning systems, another are separate assessment systems. Testing services provide various functional such as creature of simple test questions[9] with a set of answers or more complex test questions with long mathematical formulas, for example. The majority of testing services have their own standard format for the representation of assessments and results, which leads to the fact it is impossible to exchange test banks between different testing services. The solution of this problem is specification QTI [6] produced by the IMS Global Learning Consortium [7]. This specification allows to exchange data between learning systems and it guarantees immutability and unambiguous interpretation of assessments. This work is devoted to the creation of the system, which will allow to create and edit test questions in a format that would correspond with existing standard of assessment representation. In the beginning of the paper, the theoretical basis is described. In the second part, the expecting architecture of the application is discussed. After that, the highlights of the implementation are presented. Finally, the expected results are outlined. The paper contains 39 pages, 3 chapters, 13 illustrations, 8 schemes, 15 bibliography items and 4 appendices. Keywords: QTI, test assessment, web application.
