Features of Psychological and Pedagogical Online Diagnostics of Readiness for School Education



Psychological readiness for school education is the level of psychological development of a child that is necessary and sufficient for mastering the school curriculum under certain learning conditions. Traditionally, personal, intellectual, emotional and social readiness for school are distinguished, and it is also possible to distinguish a strong-willed readiness for school. Despite the variety of existing methods for diagnosing school readiness, in the modern world there is an increasing need to transfer diagnostic methods to a digital environment. Digital technologies allow us to adapt diagnostic methods for use online. A special digital diagnostic procedure has been developed that can be used with older preschool children. In our opinion, the procedure for conducting psychological and pedagogical diagnostics of readiness for school is the most optimal video call format and requires compliance with the following principles: the principle of health saving, the principle of visibility, the principle of comfort. Also, a special role in conducting digital diagnostics is played by the preparation of parents for the diagnostic procedure. The study involved 165 children aged 6–7 years. Diagnostic examinations were conducted in April 2020 (online, 112 children) and in April 2019 (offline, 53 children) with graduates of preparatory groups of kindergartens. The results obtained confirm that online diagnostics of school readiness is possible, and its results are comparable with offline diagnostics.
