Sex-Related Differences in Learning to Interpret Landsat Images and in Road Map Reading in Young Adolescents.
Goldberg, Jack; Kirman, Joseph M.
Journal of Geography, v89 n1 p15-25 Jan-Feb 1990
Investigates two questions: (1) the sex-related differences in Landsat Mastery, road map reading, and map drawing among adolescents and (2) the relationship between spatial ability and mapping skills. Replicates significantly lower female performance on parts of the Landsat tasks. Concludes that spatial ability correlations with mapping are too low to generalize to mapping test. (SLM)
