<p><b>Abstract</b>—The results of this paper can be applied to construct efficient algorithms for the adaptive assessment of the students' knowledge. The problem of knowledge assessment is a special case of the problem of assessing the state of a system. These results are obtained suggesting a new assessment algorithm whose formal equivalence to previously suggested assessment algorithms is proven. A simulation study illustrates the vast improvements of efficiency with the new algorithm.</p>
