The paper focuses on the improvement of the test control technology of mastering the educational material by the students.

The main aim of this work is to elaborate the information system for training and methodological support of learning by teacher.

This text presents the functional requirements list for the system as a result of review of existing testing systems. The design of the information system was built on the conceptual and UML use-cases models. In the work were analyzed four methods of pseudo-random numbers generating to provide a high level of tasks variability. According to this analysis the linear congruent method of randomization was chosen.

The information system of tests formation has been worked out as educational software.
