Organizing high school pupils’ independent cognitive activity in the heuristic learning of new knowledge is analyzed. The important role of academic setting which are specific for the heuristic learning is shown. Successful forming of pupils’ independent cognitive activity as an important personal ability is expressed in their ability to use independently valuable received knowledge in the practical heuristic activity. The determination of «a final educational product» in the heuristic learning is proposed in the article. Giving pupils necessary conditions to create independently their educational products is one of the main principals of the heuristic technology. The specific of use of some academic setting during the creation of high school pupils’ final educational products as one of the components of the heuristic technology, main result and indicator of their real independent cognitive activity is described in the article.

The peculiarities of motive and purpose training for independent creation of their final products are given in the article. The first one is the pupils’ ability to choose independently a kind of their final product (a composition, an essay, a project, a report etc.), a theme of their independent activity, tasks and ways to solve. The second important one is to support a dialogue interaction between a teacher and the pupils. And the last one is to use the known methods and mechanisms of the heuristic learning such as «analysis and synthesis», heuristic questions to solve cognitive problems, a set of associations etc. The peculiarities of the operation and transformation component are described. To reach a success when pupils create their final educational products can be possible if they follow step by step the law of the creative activity: forming their own cognitive and creative problem, its essential contradictions, comparing with other versions, consultation with a teacher if it is necessary, long deeping in a creative search, using mechanisms of the creative and cognitive activity etc. The importance of the diagnostic and evaluation stage is shown.
