Yilmaz, H. Bayram
International Electronic Journal of Elementary Education, v1 n2 p83-96 Mar 2009
The importance of spatial ability in learning different school subjects and being successful at certain jobs has been recognized globally. The vast majority of the studies on the topic have focused on the nature of the phenomenon, the factors that affect its development), and the difference between males and females on spatial ability. However, still there is a need to conduct research studies to have a better understanding of the construct, its relations with other abilities, and the ways to foster its development. By providing a literature review, this study addresses those issues and summarizes different ways of measuring spatial ability and fostering its development to suggest study directions to future researchers.
