MODELLING SUPPORT SYSTEMS FOR SELECTING PROFESSIONS FOR APPLICANTS IN THE CONTENT OF PERSONALIZATION OF EDUCATION

Huseyn Gasimov

Abstract


Various methods are currently being used in examining the initial “START” knowledge of applicants and their placement for specialties. Studies show that applicants are placed on the decreasing principle in terms of their overall scores at universities. In this case, applicants with a high level of knowledge are placed in the prestigious specialties as medicine and law as they require high results. Though, while applying for other professions, the applicants do not perform enough results on the key disciplines for the profession, they are placed in those professions when the general results enable it. This causes them to face a number of problems while working both in education process and in the industry.

To avoid this problem and to place applicants in a specialty that is more relevant to their level of knowledge, the introduction of an individual approach to the evaluation of initial level of knowledge may be more promising.

This article presents a modeling of the "evaluation – placement" support system for the individual approach to assessing applicants' knowledge and positioning them in relevant specialties. The main goal of the system is to give each applicant the opportunity to choose and study the specialty that is more relevant to their knowledge and skills, as well as to analyze the results for each discipline along with the overall results. The system is implemented using fuzzy logic based artificial neural networks.

The network consists of 100 neurons in the input layer, two hidden layers and one output layer. The number of neurons at the output is the same as the number of specialties taught at university.
