This study presents the results of a pedagogical experiment in teaching object-oriented programming to students of a pedagogical university. The pedagogical experiment was conducted at the Faculty of Physics and Mathematics of the Abai Kazakh National Pedagogical University and at the Kazakh National Women’s Teacher Training University. The aim of this study was to test the proposed hypothesis on the use of infographics when teaching object-oriented programming. In the process of conducting the pedagogical experiment, the students involved in the study were divided into 2 subgroups: a control group and an experimental group. The control group used traditional teaching methods and tools, while the experimental group used visualisation tools, in particular infographics. In order to assess the learning outcomes, tests were conducted in both the control and experimental groups. The authors of the study used statistical methods to confirm or refute the proposed hypothesis of the study, i.e., at the end of the pedagogical experiment, a valid conclusion about the difference and coincidence between the data obtained was drawn. The main purpose of the experiment was to test the scientific hypothesis of the study in practice and to evaluate the methodology applied.
