Psychological Structure Of Professional Reliability As University Students’ Metacognitive Quality


The article examines the professional reliability of university students as a complex, multicomponent level education, invariant in its composition to the professional activity system. Professional reliability is viewed from the standpoint of metacognitivism as a meta-education, which is a system with a “built-in” metasystem level. Professional reliability can be investigated in a strict sequence of research plans –metasystem, structural-level, functional, genetic and integrative. The structure of professional reliability is isomorphic to the components of the professional activity system and is represented by the goal, motivation, professionally important personality traits, the information basis of the activity and the activity program. The functional plan reveals the mechanisms of reliability functioning. The genetic study plan shows the dynamics of the reliability development in time according to the system genesis and metasystem genesis laws. The integrative study plan assumes a holistic view on professional reliability as a conceptual scheme, reflecting its component structure and the relationship between components and their dynamics. The scientific novelty of the research lies in defining the content of the professional reliability structure as a metacognitive quality, clarifying the meta-reliability construct, in describing its structural and functional organization and genesis.
