Abstract | Full Text

The article raises the issue of representation, indicating that multi-dimensional representation as a psychological phenomenon requires consideration in different coordinate systems. We show that system consideration is not only its study as a multifunctional education complex structure, but also the study of its integral characteristics, as the minimum set of characteristics is required, that provides its short description. We conclude that it is necessary to integrate different measurements, various order qualities and properties of representations, the allocation of determinants system, reflecting its diversity, multidimensionality and correlation of different measurements (characteristics) to each other, as well as their complementarity. We point out that the study of multi-dimensional representation involves the analysis of the relationship of its integral characteristics (controlled, vividness, brightness, sharpness), which will clarify the nature of the desired integral factors and create a common system of methods for studying the representation. We provide the results of correlation analysis of the integral characteristics of representation at different age stages of schooling.
