Abstract:The article highlights the leading ideas of Ukrainian scientists – philosophers, psychologists, educators – about the ways of individualization of education in the period of its reforming on a humanistic basis (1991-2014). The provisions of the personality-oriented paradigm of education, genetic psychology, psychology of creativity, approaches to the education of gifted children are reflected. It was substantiated that since the mid-1990s, education and upbringing in the Ukrainian school began to modernize in the spirit of the new post-non-classical education model. According to it declared, it wasn’t the acquisition of a person’s amount of knowledge that was recognized as a value, but the development of person’s potential and capabilities, the process of its creative self-actualization and self-realization, that is, the personalityoriented model of school education, the value of school education. It is shown that Ukrainian scientists in their studies substantiated the humanistic paradigm of subjectivity. It is shown that V. Kremen as the President of the National Academy of Education of Ukraine develops the paradigm of human centeredness in the context of the synergy of the value-cognitive meanings of the educational process and in the context of the actual philosophical problem of «complexity». The post-non-classical Ukrainian system of education is approved based on its informatization and computerization, and the development of the individual is largely based on the possibilities of the information space. However, the methodology of the activity approach remained in the study of the personality of the student. Ukrainian scientists created the basis for the study of the students’ psyche not as a combination of individual mental functions and cognitive parameters, which is characteristic of functional and cognitive psychology, but as an integrity with all the individual characteristics and manifestations that the person as a subject develops, organizes and controls.

Abstract:In the article the features of the assessment in differentiated instruction of English professional communication to the future IT specialists with different levels of foreign language proficiency and various learning styles are considered. Types and forms of control in differentiated instruction are characterized. Receptive, reproductive and productive ways of control are highlighted. The described two-stage model of assessment with partial involvement of adaptive testing includes: enter testing, which allows teachers differentiate students according to the levels of foreign language proficiency and learning styles; progressive adaptive testing, which is implemented in the zone of proximal development, helps to identify individual and group achievement points and needs to optimize test materials to meet students’ current needs; the final testing, which defines the level of foreign language proficiency at the end of the course. It is proposed to implement progressive adaptive testing by using mechanisms of adaptation, expansion and complication, improvement. Adaptive mechanism involves the effect of adapting to individual characteristics, based on the level of foreign language proficiency in the enter testing and a dominant learning style. The mechanism of expansion and complication aims at shifting the emphasis in the learning style of the students (not dominant learning styles), increasing the complexity of tasks for students providing them by various supports. The mechanism of improvement is focused on variations of learning styles, the development of English-language skills, as well as the wide usage of assessment strategies. The criteria for the complexity of the test task are analysed.

Abstract:The article deals with the essence and content of the concept of general pedagogy in the context of itscorrelation with the multiplicity of knowledge about education, its development and improvement of the conceptual and terminological apparatus of modern pedagogical research. It has been emphasized that general pedagogy is understood as science and as a scientific discipline, and the definition of general pedagogy, as a rule, includes both aspects. The article concludes that general pedagogy is the core of pedagogical science; it forms its basis, which at the substantive-essential level distinguishes pedagogical science from all other branches of scientific knowledge. General pedagogy studies and discloses key pedagogical categories, notions, concepts, paradigms, approaches, laws, patterns, principles according to which any pedagogical phenomenon or pedagogical process are opened out, develops a methodology for building pedagogical science and conducting pedagogical research, methods and methodology for evaluating the effectiveness of pedagogical phenomena and processes, criteria of the scientific and pedagogical activity effectiveness, analysis of general pedagogical and philosophical doctrines. The actual problems of general pedagogy are the methodology of pedagogical research, problems of the upbringing and socialization of children and youth, history of pedagogy, comparative pedagogy, problems of managing educational institutions and strategies for their development. The modernity of the solution of the indicated problems is determined by the completeness of the account of the conditions in which people find themselves today: the globalized world, technological challenges, expansion of the media space and its impact on human consciousness, a crisis of values, problems of intercultural communication, and the like. The study of these complex problems requires a new methodology of pedagogical research at the level of multi- and interdisciplinarity. The development of such a methodology is an urgent need for modern pedagogical science and practice.
