Diagnostics basing on testing paths: the method of patterns

730

Abstract

Presented is the method of patterns to diagnose subjects basing on testing paths which represent results of completion of tasks in the order of their appearance. This method allows solving diagnostics tasks having limited observation results, building diagnostics conclusions only relying on the analysis of accumulated empirical data and changing adaptively both the number of presented testing tasks and their content to attain the given level of diagnostic assessment reliability.
