A main focus in the field of research on competences of teachers is on diagnostic competence. Although it is stated that prospective teachers’ diagnostic competences are trainable, they are still described as too low. Therefore, the present study aims to foster diagnostic competence of prospective primary teachers. In the study diagnostic competence is conceptualised with so-called epistemic activities. The treatment bases on empirically known factors about fostering diagnostic competence and follows the teaching and learning method of comparing and contrasting. The success of the method is proven for various fields but has not yet been researched in the field of professional development of prospective teachers. The article introduces the theoretical framework, the method and results of the data analysis.
