In the article here is up-to-dated the problem of creation and implementation of the complex system on measurement and assessment of the teachers' competences.

The description of the computer test is provided: approaches to develop the system of test tasks, determination of their contents, forms and options of representation, results of testing, working conditions with a set of tasks. Screenshots of some pages of the computer test are shown, the operation algorithm, approaches to formation and interpretation of the basis of statistics, the form of presenting recommendations on work with testing results are described. Results of the test approbation on the group of 96 teachers working with gifted children and youth are provided. The subject of testing is a cluster of the teacher's metasubject competences including communicative, research, motivating, organizing, information, creative, tutorial, methodical competences and the self-improvement competence. Analysis results of tests are provided in the aspect of mean scores, generalized characteristics of formation of teachers' competences and also generalized characteristics of professional deficits, which respondents have.
