Spatial Ability Development in the Geosciences

Spatial Ability Development in the Geosciences

This poster from Tammy K. Baldwin and Michelle Hall Wallace introduces an experiment which aimed "to evaluate change in students' spatial skills as a result of completing an earth science course." The study results show "an improvement in spatial skills for all groups after completing the science course." Results of the basic spatial relations test and a spatial orientation test are included along with data on gender differences in the study. The material would be helpful for instructors in the geosciences, or educators interested in improving the spatial skills of their students. This document may be downloaded in PDF file format.
