Computer Experience and Gender Differences in Undergraduate Mental Rotation Performance.
De Lisi, Richard; Cammarano, Diane M.
Computers in Human Behavior, v12 n3 p351-61 Fall 1996
This study surveyed undergraduates (27 men, 83 women) to investigate gender differences in mental rotation. It compared pretesting on the Vandenberg Test of Mental Rotation (VTMR) and posttesting after two sessions of computer games. Men typically scored higher on pretest VTMR. After playing a game requiring mental rotation of figures, women outscored men who played only computer solitaire. (LAM)
