AbstractThe article discusses new, visual, rather simple from computational point of view, methods for calculating the individual trajectories of trainees. Indicators characterizing the effectiveness of the learning process are introduced: the volume and pace of knowledge acquisition, the student’s abilities. These indicators can be used to form individual educational trajectories. Econometric models have been constructed for these indicators. It is shown how to build models using dummy variables. Based on such models, it is possible to assess the presence of structural changes in the educational process. The aim of the study is to develop indicators that characterize the formation of individual educational trajectories of students and the construction of econometric models of regression dependences of these indicators on factor sign (number of study hours). The models developed in the article can be used to monitor the educational process with the possibility of its adjustment, management, as well as to predict its effectiveness. These indicators can be used to form individual educational trajectories.
