One of the conditions for increasing the level of schoolers’ motor preparedness is organizing pedagogical control both in physical culture classes (Khudolii, 2008; Ivashchenko, Cieślicka, Khudolii & Yermakov, 2014; Ivashchenko, Muszkieta, Khudolii & Yermakov, 2014) and under sports training conditions (Khudolii, 2011; Khudolii & Yermakov, 2011; Khudolii & Ivashchenko, 2013). The pedagogical control procedure is classification of the current state of motor and functional preparedness on which decision-making depends in the process of children’s and teenagers’ physical education management (Ivashchenko, Khudolii,  Yermakova, Pilewska, Muszkieta & Stankiewicz, 2015).

Lopatiev’s study (2007) regards modelling as methodology of learning; Khudolii and Yermakov (2011), Kalynichenko and Lopatiev (2012), Lopatiev, Vlasov and Trach (2013) emphasize the applied aspects of modelling in physical education and sport; Khudolii (2011), Khudolii and Ivashchenko (2013) in their research have developed conceptual approaches to the learning process modelling and development of motor abilities in physical education and sport. They explore the models in the process of development of motor abilities that may be used for in-process and final control of the children’s and teenagers’ preparedness. According to the data provided by Khudolii and Ivashchenko (2013), Ivashchenko, Muszkieta, Khudolii and Yermakov (2014), Ivashchenko, Cieślicka, Khudolii and Yermakov (2014) in-process control of the level of motor preparedness in children and teenagers can be ensured through multidimensional methods and models. 

Abstract of the article


The objective is to determine the methodological approaches to pedagogical control in physical education of girls aged 12-14.

Materials and methods. The participants of the study were girls aged 12 (n = 31), aged 13 (n = 26), and aged 14 (n = 28).

To achieve the tasks set, the study relied on the following methods: analysis of scientific literature, pedagogical testing and methods of mathematical statistics. To evaluate the functional and motor preparedness of the girls aged 12-14, we recorded the results of Stange and Genchi, Serkin and motor tests.

Results. The standardized coefficients of the canonical discriminant function allow to determine the relation of the variables contribution to the function result. The first function explains the results variation by 86.8% (p < 0.001), the second — by 13.2% (p < 0.001). The above proves that pedagogical control is possible in physical education based on the classification of the age differences in girls aged 12-14, by the results of their functional, strength and coordination preparedness tested.

The structural coefficients of the first canonical discriminant function indicate that a significant difference between the girls aged 12 and the girls aged 13-14 occurs in the level of development of their motor coordination, speed strength and the results of Stange’s test. The structural coefficients of the second canonical discriminant function indicate that a significant difference between the girls aged 13 and 14 occurs in the level of development of the static and relative strength of their arm muscles.

Conclusions. The final pedagogical control of motor and functional preparedness of the girls aged 12-14 can rest on the first discriminant function with emphasis on the most informative variables.
