      <Abstract>The purpose of the study was dynamic assessment of academic performance and higher mental functions of schoolchildren in elementary school and during transition to subject-based education.&#13;
The test-based analysis of higher mental functions in schoolchildren with recurrent respiratory infections (RRI) at the stage of primary education has shown an increase in the ratio of schoolchildren with low values according to the offered tests characterising activity and independence in cognitive and social activities (the WAM method), motivation and academic performance (the “Landolt’s correction test”), logical thinking (a test for the development of logical and cognitive processes by Leontiev A.N.) and indicators of attention and performance of the child (the Toulouse-Pieron test).&#13;
The characteristic behavioural features of children with RRI during the transition to subject-based education are a decrease in communication skills (the “Man in the rain” drawing test) and a high level of anxiety in 70% of the schoolchildren (Spielberger-Khanin test).</Abstract>
