Abstract. The article reflects the author’s experience of improving the visual schema of the process of standardized tests creation and introduction (for the lecture in English on the topic "Assessment Cycle"). The elements of the scheme are considered in detail, the choice of their English names and the ways of the visual representation of the process steps and transitions from one step to another is substantiated. The schema allows one to create a clear understanding of the principles of the organization of the test creation process, due to which its validity and correspondence to the defined function are increased.
Key words and phrases: стандартизированный тест, схематизация, процесс разработки тестов, повышение квалификации учителей, наглядность, standardized test, schematization, tests development process, teachers’ advanced training, visualization.
