Russian studies in Slovakia in 21st century follows the clear cultural conception of development. Contemporary theory of testing is based on general knowledge about measuring learning outputs and it attempts to unify test designing for all foreign langauges, beginning from selection of supporting materials to creation of test items. In the context of Russian studies in Slovakia, this approach seems to be contraproductive. Therefore, i tis important to define testology as an individual  discipline, to identify it basic units, categorise its parts, to specify conditions for designing tests in Russian for Slovak speakers, to characterise a supporting document and its fundamental elements, to analyse the existing tanks of supporting documents and related items that have been already design a s part of already completed projects.

Key words: testology, konstruct, supporting document, cultureme, item
