Influences of Training and Strategical Information Processing Style on Spatial Performance in Apparel Design
Gitimu, Priscilla N.; Workman, Jane E.; Anderson, Marcia A.
Career and Technical Education Research, v30 n3 p147-168 2005
The study investigated how performance on a spatial task in apparel design was influenced by training and strategical information processing style. The sample consisted of 278 undergraduate apparel design students from six universities in the U.S. Instruments used to collect data were the Apparel Spatial Visualization Test (ASVT) and the Strategical Information Processing Style (SIPS). ANOVA results showed a significant difference in performance on the ASVT between students with more training and those with less training in apparel design. There was no significant difference in performance on the ASVT as a result of students' preferred strategical information processing styles. Findings of the study indicated that performance on a spatial visualization task was influenced by training but not by strategical information processing style. (Contains 5 tables.)
