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…

Delahunty, Thomas; Pérez, Lance C.; Rivera-Reyes, Presentacion – Engineering Design Graphics Journal, 2018
Spatial skills have a known beneficiary role in STEM students' academic success. This paper explores data relating to the role of spatial skills in electrical engineering problem solving which is a relatively under researched area. Data indicate a significant association between electrical engineering problem solving and spatial skills and a…

Sadowski, Mary A.; Sorby, Sheryl A. – Engineering Design Graphics Journal, 2018
Grading is often a faculty member's least favorite chore, especially in engineering where open-ended problems prevail. For this reason, multiple-choice test items could be a popular alternative for assessing learning and understanding. In addition, most Learning Management Systems allow the instructor to create multiple-choice questions to be…

Duffy, Gavin; Power, Jason; Sorby, Sheryl; Bowe, Brian – Engineering Design Graphics Journal, 2018
Spearman concluded that performance on any test of mental ability could be explained by several cognitive factors organized hierarchically as one general factor and several subordinate specific factors (Spearman, 1904, 1927). The general factor accounted for the significant amount of inter-correlation between all ability tests for any one…

Bowen, Bradley D.; Coats, Teena; Williams, Thomas O.; Ernst, Jeremy V. – Engineering Design Graphics Journal, 2018
Although the caseload of students with categorical disabilities and limited English proficiency has increased in recent years for secondary engineering design graphics teachers, the level of preparation to teach students with these characteristics has not. Given that teachers must develop inclusive classroom environments for all students, the…

Ernst, Jeremy V.; Willams, Thomas O.; Clark, Aaron C.; Kelly, Daniel P. – Engineering Design Graphics Journal, 2017
The Purdue Spatial Visualization Test: Visualization of Rotations (PVST:R) is among the most commonly used measurement instruments to assess spatial ability among engineering students. Previous analysis that explores the factor structure of the PSVT:R indicates a single-factor measure of the instrument. With this as a basis, this research seeks to…
