An exploratory analysis into the relationships between spatial factors, domain-free general capacities and general fluid intelligence.
The inception of psychometric research concerning individual differences in cognition was grounded in explaining and enhancing performance in education (Spearman, 1904). This work established the construct of a single ...
Developing a methodological approach to measure cognitive load during complex problem solving.
(Technology Education Research Group, 2019-06)
Problem solving is an important element of engineering and technology disciplines and spatial ability contributes to learners’ success in problem solving in these areas (Wai, et al., 2009). As excessive cognitive load ...
Investigating the use of spatial reasoning strategies in geometric problem solving.
A core aim of contemporary science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education is the development of robust problem-solving skills. This can be achieved by fostering both discipline knowledge expertise and ...
A preliminary model of problem categorisation to explore the cognitive abilities required for problem solving in engineering education.
The provision of engineering education as a means of enabling students to develop contemporary transversal competencies such as problem solving, critical thinking, adaptive reasoning and communication, places a responsibility ...
An investigation into problem solving approaches adopted during graphical reasoning episodes.
A core aim of contemporary design and technology education is the development of transferable and robust problem solving skills. Graphical education is a critical component in achieving this aim as it espouses to enhance ...
