A five-point system of knowledge assessment of students is outdated and ineffective. This was at a round table “Izvestia” said the head of the Center for monitoring the quality of education of Higher school of Economics, former head rosobrnadzora Victor Bolotov.

The expert called a five point system yesterday and noted that for her makeover you need to improve the skills of school teachers.

“We did work on the transition to multi-system. Was a big project for a 12-point system. The school is actually now four-point system — number no one. The teacher puts three plus, four minus. It is necessary to legalize these pros and cons,” — said Bolotov.

He added that to date the possibility of giving up a five-point system is discussed. “Any serious teacher doesn’t want the Troika writing set, and to evaluate the competence of the student. To understand what is enough and what is not” — said the expert.

Bolotov said that in the long term we must work to improve standards of education in the XXI century, which includes the so-called 4 K’s-creativity, critical thinking, cooperation, communication. Bolotov remembered that the may decree of the Russian President envisages the need to enter the top ten countries with best education systems.

The Deputy head of Rosobrnadzor Anzor Muzaev has told about the next innovations in education. Next year will be the oral part of the Russian language as the admission to final attestation in the ninth grade, and as a foreign language of choice will be to take Chinese. Within two to three years, the exam will appear the part connected with performance of tasks on the computer. 2022 foreign language will become a compulsory subject on the exam.

In schools in Ukraine and in Belarus a 10-point and 12-point grading scale have been in place for over 15 years.
