How to check oven temperature using oven thermometer?

How to check oven temperature using oven thermometer?

I put oven thermometer into the oven and started preheating it at 200°C for 20 min.
My oven reached 200°C within 5-7 mins. After 12-15 min it reached 190°C. And it was still 190°C.
What does this mean?

There are several possibilities:
"cool" spots in the oven
Oven may need to be calibrated
Some ovens take a little longer to heat up and maintain temps
Heating element kicks in when temperature drops to a certain level

Has the element kicked in now that it's about half an hour?
