Impacts of Effective Temperature on Sectional View Drawing Ability and Implications for Engineering and Technology Education Students
Katsioloudis, Petros J.
Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, v18 n2 p17-22 Apr-Jun 2017
Temperature can influence thermal comfort, working performance, and social behavior. In a classroom that is slightly cool, an assumption can be made that learning could be affected in a negative way. Considering this, a quasi-experimental study was done to determine if a significant difference of effective temperature have an effect on students': a) spatial visualization ability, as measured by the MCT and b) ability to sketch a sectional view drawing. While not statistically significant, the students who received treatment using warm water outperformed their peers who received treatment using cold and hot water temperatures, respectively.
