Computer-Aided Design Training and Spatial Visualization Ability in Gifted Adolescents.
Mack, Warren E.
Journal of Technology Studies, v21 n2 p57-63 Sum-Fall 1995
An experimental group of 20 gifted adolescents received 3 weeks of computer-assisted design (CAD) instruction. Comparison of their scores on Revised Minnesota Paper Form Board test with those of 20 gifted controls showed CAD did not improve spatial visualization ability. Possible causes were differential computer experience, lack of random sampling, and need for more than one instrument and a multidimensional instrument to measure visualization. (SK)
