Resumo

The aim of the study was to identify and compare the level of students’ basic competences. An objective assessment of the ways of development and trends in the development of basic competencies through interactive methods was carried out. The methods and techniques of acquiring the required basic competencies that have been used effectively in the educational process were developed as part of professional and personal development of future specialists. Methods: analytico-synthetic, testing, survey; method of situational modelling; qualitative and quantitative analysis; empirical statistical and mathematical interpretation; functional analysis of research results. Results. On the basis of a theoretical analysis of a scientific problem, an objective and subjective model for diagnosing the level of formation of basic competencies of students was developed. The importance of the author’s analytical considerations and generalizations on the application of objective diagnostic methods is confirmed. The first group of respondents had a sufficient level of basic competences (364.1 points), which is 73.8%. The intellectual and creative segment showed the highest rate in the structure of competencies — 75.1%. The second group of non-linguistic respondents showed a somewhat similar level of Basic Competences (369.9 points = 75.8%), however, showed a relative weakness of the socio-emotional segment (53.5%). Prospects. Further research can be directed towards identifying and developing research methods for many competencies, taking into account the age characteristics of students.
