The authors have previously researched and analyzed, both manually and with the help of a computer program, preschool and primary school children's performance in the eye-hand coordination test and their depth perception. The study used the standardized DTVP-2 test - a psychophysiological test, and it will report as a golden standard for evaluation of visual - motor and visual perception integration. Computer-aided test processing significantly accelerates the collection and acquisition of test results - as we know, time is now a very high resource that everyone needs to spare. We evaluated the stereo vision of 56 participants by using the TNO test and eye-hand coordination. The participants were children of preschool and primary school age. Twenty of them were from a school for children with cognitive disabilities. The TNO test results showed that 54% of children between the ages of 5.5 and 9.0 years old had 60 arcsec, 18% - 120 arcsec, and 29% - 240 arcsec. The DTVP -2 test execution rate shows a very strong correlation with the stereoacuity (r = 0, 90; p < 0, 05). A computerized DTVP -2 test performance coefficient shows a higher correlation with stereo (r =0, 99; p < 0, 05). The DTVP -2 performance coefficient related to stereovision value - the higher the eye-hand coordination performance coefficient, the lower are the stereo threshold value. The conclusions of master thesis research became hypotheses of PhD research and started developing a ViMoT methodology. The development of a new methodology (ViMoT) for assessing visual-motor coordination and visual perception in electronic format and the subsequent development of a computer program will facilitate many specialists' work. It will make it possible to devote more time to processing, but correction or help of an individual (patient), depending on his problem. By working in an interdisciplinary manner, there is an in-depth knowledge of the topic, researched, and new solutions relevant to e-learning. Ensures the quality of the research and increases competitiveness. The following primary research methods will be applied to achieve the aim of the study: theoretical data research as descriptive analysis, content analysis, and comparative method; mixed type of methods as both qualitative research methods and quantitative research methods – document use, case studies, surveys, focus groups discussions and interviews with target groups, experimental and practical testing of recommendations; analysis methods as descriptive analysis, statistical analysis, and others. Today's users and learners require a user-oriented and personalized approach, not only in applications but also in education. The primary study aims to develop components for improving e-learning and learning process Visual-Motor Test (ViMoT) methodologies based and a new computerized tool on visual science basic principles, psychophysiological, and learners' needs.
