Specificity of controlling behavior in learning
(RESUME)

Psychological peculiarities of the controlling behavior in learning is described on the basis of D. B. Elkonin and V. V. Davydov's theoretical approach. Results of an experimental study are given which dealt with: a) functional role of control in the learning activity of younger schoolchildren, b) methods which guarantee efficiency of the controlling behavior while tackling an instructional task. A procedure is described which not only makes it possible to register controlling acts of preventive or reflective nature but allows one to understand their mechanism.
