Kelly, Daniel P.; Ernst, Jeremy V.; Clark, Aaron C. – Engineering Design Graphics Journal, 2019
Part of a more extensive National Science Foundation-funded study, this study presents the findings and analysis of the effect on three-dimensional modeling self-efficacy (3DSE) by the inclusion of online active learning modules (ALM). Using multiple datasets, we found that the use of ALM in an introductory engineering graphics course, closed a…

Bairaktarova, Diana; Williams, Daron; Katsioloudis, Petros J. – Engineering Design Graphics Journal, 2019
For the last decade, remedial spatial visualization training has been offered to first-year engineering students in traditional classroom settings where students attend class and interact face-to-face with an instructor and peers. An alternative to the traditional pedagogical approach is a multi-modal blended learning format that combines in-class…

Sierra, Egoitz; Minguez, Rikardo; Solaberrieta, Eneko; Goikoetxea, Nestor; Iturrate, Mikel – Engineering Design Graphics Journal, 2019
This article shows the benefits of active learning compared to traditional learning. It proves the importance of a fruitful discussion between peers. It is a sample of methodological change with no curricular change. It also shows the overall satisfaction of the students, who achieved an equal or better academic performance than the students in…

Williams, Thomas O., Jr.; Ernst, Jeremy V.; Kelly, Daniel P.; Clark, Aaron C. – Engineering Design Graphics Journal, 2019
The Purdue Spatial Visualization Test: Visualization of Rotations (PSVT: R) is a widely used assessment of spatial ability. In this report, the factor structure of the PSVT: R test items was examined through confirmatory factor analysis with data from 541 engineering design graphics students. Stata 15 and Mplus 8.2 statistical software were used…

Sreekanth, Anusha Parampalli; Viswanathan, Vimal K. – Engineering Design Graphics Journal, 2019
The efficiency and popularity of computer-aided design (CAD) packages have been continually improving over the past couple of decades. Most of the graduating engineers are proficient in their use and prefer using CAD models instead of simple freehand sketches to communicate their ideas. While these CAD models can enable better visualization of the…

Sun, Lulu – Engineering Design Graphics Journal, 2018
Engineering programs need to prepare the next generation of engineering professionals for tackling sustainability challenges that impact the social, environmental, and economic progress of the nation. This paper describes how the sustainable design concept was integrated into a freshman-level engineering gateway course that emphasized creative…

Cohen, Cheryl; Bairaktarova, Diana – Engineering Design Graphics Journal, 2018
First-year engineering (FYE) students are routinely screened for spatial ability, with the goals of predicting retention in the major and identifying those who need supplementary spatial instruction. Psychometric tests used for such screenings are often domain-general measures that lack diagnostic information to inform remedial instruction. A new…

Katsioloudis, Petros; Jones, Mildred – Engineering Design Graphics Journal, 2018
Results from a number of studies indicate that the type of light generated by the reflection on the surface of different types of surfaces can influence the spatial visualization ability; however, research provides inconsistent results. Considering this, a quasi-experimental study was conducted to identify the existence of statistically…

Buckley, Jeffrey; Canty, Donal; White, David; Seery, Niall; Campbell, Mark – Engineering Design Graphics Journal, 2018
Spatial ability, particularly the cognitive capacity for mental rotations, is a critical component of human cognition. Proficiency with mental rotation tasks is linked with educational performance in various Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines, and with more general tasks such as real world wayfinding. Spatial…

Denson, Cameron; Kelly, Daniel; Clark, Aaron – Engineering Design Graphics Journal, 2018
Binkley et al. (2012) contends that the economy and workplace for the 21st Century will not lie in the routine tasks of the past, instead emphasis will be put on the ability of students to communicate, share and use information to solve increasingly complex problems. This is especially true of individuals who chose to pursue careers in the…

Hyland, Tomás; Gordon, Seamus; Canty, Donal; Buckley, Jeffrey; Seery, Niall – Engineering Design Graphics Journal, 2018
One of the leading frameworks in engineering education specifically associated with design based competencies is the CDIO framework. This has been incorporated internationally into many institutions offering engineering education courses. Characterized by four unique stages, the CDIO framework affords an ideal scenario to incorporate a continuous…

Budinoff, Hannah; McMains, Sara – Engineering Design Graphics Journal, 2018
The impact of spatial visualization ability on student outcomes in a freshman-level, 3D modeling class is explored by analyzing connections between students' spatial ability pre- and post-test scores, course grades, and self-reported difficulty of an assignment. Analysis of the results indicate that spatial visualization ability, as measured by…

Denson, Cameron D.; Kelly, Daniel P. – Engineering Design Graphics Journal, 2018
Research on self-efficacy has provided evidence that it is a moderating factor that positively impacts students' choices to pursue and persist in engineering. Engineering graphics is seen as the preferred method of communication for the profession, yet to date no instrument is available that measures students' self-efficacy as it relates to…
