About the author:

Alfiya F. Zakirova, Dr. Sci. (Ped.), Professor, Academic Department of Methodology and Theory of Social and Educational Research, University of Tyumen;


The article highlights the content and structure of the methodological apparatus of scientific research on educational problems. From the panoramic approach viewpoint the requirements for substantiation of the study relevance are disclosed. Logical, stylistic and language features of argumentation in the process of perfecting methodological apparatus are outlined. The article reveals the characteristics of different types of research hypotheses and its implementable functions. The scientific hypothesis is presented as a tool for the conceptualization of pedagogical knowledge. The author’s interpretation of the “transparent” gradual hypothesizing as the process of meaning formation and theoretical organization of the subject study are presented.
