Peculiarities of pictorial activity of the first-year pupils in the period of adaptation to the school life

An experimental method is suggested of assessing the degree of emotional adaptation of a child to the school life. The method is based on a pictographic test (described in the text). Choice of colours, subjects of the drawing, and the summary length of lines produced by the child are used as indicators of his emotional attitude to the school. Efficiency of the test was checked by the use of other diagnostical procedures. Some individual cases are presented in sufficient detail.
