Levels in the development of systemic learning-cognitive behavior

Systemic structure of the learning-cognitive behavior of schoolchildren regarded as a criterion of its maturity has been experimentally studied Some indicators of the behavior at this level have been established: a) ability to deduce properties of an element of a system from the general principle on which the system is built, b) ability to design an object in correspondence with the meaning of the principle. A diagnostical procedure has been worked out and tested to check the systemic nature of the schoolchildren's learning-cognitive behavior. Experiments reveal three stages in the development of mature, systemic behavior each characterized by the ability to deal with newer instructional tasks and to adequately apply previously acquired skills and habits.
