Numerous methods, tools and standards have been developed to ensure that such systems will comply with their requirements. However, the development of such requirements often does not receive the same level of attention. Indeed, in the case of highly reliable, mission-critical or safety-related control systems, operating experience shows that problems due to inadequate requirements tend to outnumber those due to incorrect design and implementation.

The use of open source software is fundamentally has not been studied, it’s not so much a new trend in the educational activity as psychological and social factors. Barriers to the use of free software in education is primarily distrust people to great opportunities of free software and understanding why well made software can be free. All these factors together hinder the promotion of free software in the educational community that at this stage of education is no longer acceptable.

The main <em>task</em> is to show the possibilities of electronic grade book using for determination the level of students’ physics research competencies. The <em>object</em> of study is the tools of monitoring and evaluation of the level of students’ physics research competencies. The <em>subject</em> of study is the using of cloud technologies for monitoring and evaluation of the level of students’ physics research competencies.</p> <p>In previous studies it was shown that the system of students’ physics research competencies contains 14 competencies of 3 stages of research. Each competence consists of 4 components: cognitive, praxeological, axiological, social and behavioral. Moreover, each component of each competency has different impact on the level of students’ physics research competencies. Thus, the evaluation of the level of students’ physics research competencies requires the measurement of the levels of 56 components.</p> <p>This process is pretty time-consuming, but all mathematical operations that are needed for it, are typical. So, the monitoring of the level of students’ physics research competencies can be automated. It is proposed to use cloud-based spreadsheets for creating the electronic grade book for monitoring the level of students’ physics research competencies.</p> Олександр Володимирович Мерзликін ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2014-12-25 2014-12-25 12 322 328 Our authors http://ccjournals.eu/ojs/index.php/nocote/article/view/729 Sergey Alexeevich Semerikov ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2014-12-25 2014-12-25 12 329 334 Index http://ccjournals.eu/ojs/index.php/nocote/article/view/730 Sergey Alexeevich Semerikov ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2014-12-25 2014-12-25 12 335 335 Index http://ccjournals.eu/ojs/index.php/nocote/article/view/731 Sergey Alexeevich Semerikov ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2014-12-25 2014-12-25 12 336 336 Edition notice http://ccjournals.eu/ojs/index.php/nocote/article/view/732 Sergey Alexeevich Semerikov ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2014-12-25 2014-12-25 12 337 337
