Exploring the Influences of Geometric Spatial Visualization, Gender, and Ethnicity on the Acquisition of Geometry Content Knowledge.
Capraro, Robert M.
This paper examines the differences between student performance on two separate measures, the Spatial Visualization portion of the "Differential Aptitude Test" and the "Geometry Content Knowledge Test." Results from the hybrid quantitative/qualitative study indicate that although there were no differences in performance on spatial visualization for males and females or across ethnicities, differences in performance on geometry content knowledge tasks for ethnicity were evident.
