Annotation: The article deals with the method of comparative assessment of group performance of students on the basis of specially developed characteristics. The methodology is intended for comparative analysis of the results of the activities of different groups within the same educational institution. In this paper, we propose a new type of sigmoid function, which is called the academic performance function. The arguments of the academic performance function are positive values. In fact, these arguments are related to the number of students in the group and the grades received. The special characteristics of the proposed methodology are the efficiency function and the integral evaluation of the test results. The method of comparative assessment of group performance of students using the proposed performance function is an alternative to the Rasch model. In practical application for teaching staff, the method is less time-consuming, which is demonstrated by practical examples. The method is described and the results of experimental evaluation using this method are presented. The conditions for using the method are described.
