Thanks to her research in home didactics, the transition from comprehending the developmental function of teaching as a phenomenon of pedagogical activity, to identifying it as an independent didactic object, also requiring inclusion in the structure of a conceptual and terminological apparatus of pedagogy was implemented. E. Seliverstova has created a structural model of the developmental function of education. As for didactics, she carried out a pedagogical interpretation of psychological views on the relationship between learning and development, justified and described the qualitative heterogeneity of the goals of intellectual development of schoolchildren in teaching. It was proved that the principle of subjectivity is the basis for understanding the content of education as a basic didactic tool for the realization of developing essence of teaching. Thus, she has distinguished the set of didactic requirements for the formation of educational content providing planned levels of intellectual development for schoolchildren. Moreover, she has identified and characterized approaches to the comparative analysis of the level of intellectual development of pupils which can be provided by various types of learning (traditional teaching, problem-development teaching, personality-based teaching).
