Summary/Abstract: In many technology related courses in addition to the new content, previously learned knowledge about science and science related supportive tools are simultaneously studied. In the field of applied sciences, the aim is to apply technology applications derived from these scientific methods and models to the operating environment. From the point of view technical disciplines in cadets’ education are important but narrow in scope, so there is a need to look for solutions that meet the educational goals of the local community. In this research, it is considered to build a broader assessment, to support learning to be motivating, and also to guide teachers at their work. This empirical research consists of findings from three successive courses in the sensor technology education for cadets. Examination structure is analyzed according to the test scoring and student success. As a conclusion, a course of specific mix of quiz can be recommended. Moreover, the principles of the presented form-based test are transferable to electronic assessment environments.
