Three-dimensional spatial visualization is an essential skill for geoscientists. We conducted two evaluations of students’ spatial skills to examine whether their skills improve after enrollment in a geology course or courses. First, we present results of pre- and post-course survey of abstract visualization skills used to characterize the range of spatial abilities in the student population at Carleton College. In Introductory Geology, there was a correlation between those who score very… Expand
