Purpose of the study: This article is devoted to the test form of control which is characterized by objective measurement of learning outcomes because they are guided by the objective empirical criteria.

Methodology: Method of structural analysis, content analysis method, scientific interpretation, and synthesis of specific factual materials were chosen as methods of our research.

Results: Test control of knowledge is effective only when a great effort is made by the teacher. The teacher should know how to choose the right tests and how to make them, as not every set of questions with answers to them can be called a test. The aim of this work is to identify the problems of using testing as a control form of foreign language learning and give guidelines for their solution.

Applications of this study: This research can be used for the universities, teachers, and students.

Novelty/Originality of this study: In this research, the model of the Problems of Testing Application in Foreign Language Learning Control is presented in a comprehensive and complete manner.
