The Effects of Spatial Visualization Skill Training on Gender and Retention in Engineering.
Devon, Richard; Engel, Renata; Turner, Geoffrey
Journal of Women and Minorities in Science and Engineering, v4 n4 p371-80 1998
Engineering students were given a mental rotation test at the beginning and end of their first-year engineering course and again several years later to assess the relationship between spatial visualization skill and retention in engineering. No relationship was found between task scores and retention; however, a course in design and graphics reduced the gender gap in mental rotation scores. (Author/PVD)
