Abstract

This article explains the importance of psychological evaluation of the educational environment, built on the foundations of humanitarian expertise. We proved that the psychological evaluation is an adequate means of determining the comfort and safety of the educational environment, as the characteristics necessary for the full personal development of its members. We discuss the need for a deeper analysis is subjective (psychological) component, which is the subject of a psychological evaluation, as in the educational environment, objective and subjective conditions and prerequisites for development are closely intertwined. It is proposed to introduce the concept of “social situation of development in the educational environment” to describe the relationship of the individual with the educational environment, being a prerequisite and a factor of his development. It is proved that the key for the development of the concept of psychological evaluation of the educational environment are the main provisions of the theoretical concepts of a subject. We describe a conceptual model of the psychological evaluation of the educational environment and the results of its empirical validation.
