This research investigates how software can be used to teach spatial skills leading to greater success in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematical (STEM) fields. Existing research indicates that spatial skills can be taught and that good spatial skills are common to people who succeed in STEM fields. In this work, a softwareonly testing system with a direct targeted, training intervention module was implemented to measure and teach spatial skills using mental rotations, which are… CONTINUE READING
