Individual Differences in Complex Spatial Problem Solving: Aptitude and Strategy Effects.
Mumaw, Randall J.; And Others
Twenty-eight engineering students were presented with complex spatial problems to investigate the effects of spatial aptitude and strategy selection on problem solving. Aptitude was determined by spatial aptitude test scores and strategy was determined by verbal reports and latency measures. It was found that aptitude determined the efficiency with which certain strategies could be utilized. (Author)
