The present research is aimed at identifying the quality of education from the perspective of students’ vision as participants in this educational process (according to the following criteria: fundamentality, sufficiency, modernity, level of digitalization of the quality of education), its impact on their educational level, and the study of students’ motivation to learn, based on their assessment of the content level of educational curricula. The main research method is a comparative sociological study, which compares the research data of students of the M. Akmulla Bashkir State Pedagogical University (BSPU) with the results of other monitoring studies conducted in the Russian Federation and the Republic of Bashkortostan. In addition to the questionnaire method, the focus group method was also used. The study revealed students’ attitudes to the quality of education, motivation to study, assessment of the content and quality of education, attitude to technologies, and learning conditions. According to the results of the 2019 study, 75% of students of BSPU were generally satisfied with the level of education quality. The novelty of the research is based on the following facts: quantitative parameters dominate over qualitative ones, which, as a result, leads to the information overload of the educational process subjects and a decrease in the level of competencies that determine the ability of students to think independently and analyze information.
