He said that MR-system had been implemented into the system of Higher education in the Republic of Belarus. He mentioned that MR-system was introduced to the academic system at the Department of Preschool and Elementary education. The effective aspect of this system was proved by such psychological and pedagogical aspects as information capacity, student self-check system, motivation to upgrade professional competence.
