Examining the components of fluid intelligence: implications for STEM education.
Substantial empirical evidence illustrates the significance of spatial ability for STEM academic achievement. However, it is critical that research efforts continue to identify cognitive factors which are associated with ...
Spatial working memory in mental rotations: a case for exploring neural efficiency and cognitive strategies.
Spatial ability, particularly the cognitive capacity for mental rotations, is a critical component of human cognition. Proficiency with mental rotation tasks is linked with education performance in various science, technology, ...
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 ...
MIND strengths: the unique cognitive architecture of engineering and technology students.
Engineering and technology education is uniquely positioned within formal education systems to facilitate the development of a broad range of cognitive competencies such as designerly thinking, spatial reasoning and ...
Spatial cognition in engineering education: developing a spatial ability framework to support the translation of theory into practice.
(Taylor & Francis Online, 2019)
A substantial degree of empirical evidence has illustrated the correlation between spatial skills and performance in engineering education. This evidence has been foundational in the construction of educational interventions ...
