A Review of Spatial Ability Research
Mohler, James L.
Engineering Design Graphics Journal, v72 n3 p19-30 Spr 2008
Spatial ability research has been approached from several psychological vantages since its beginnings in the late 1800s. This contribution attempts a summation of spatial ability research, beginning with a historical vignette and a major section on each psychological approach including the psychometric, developmental, differential and information processing approach. Of importance is what each approach has contributed to our knowledge of spatial ability. (Contains 1 table and 2 figures.)
