ABSTRACT El test re.1 es una prueba computarizada construida en el lenguaje hypertalk con el programa hypercard, para la evaluación de las relaciones espaciales simples, dimensión especifica dentro de la aptitud espacial. El diseño, construcción y análisis del test ha sido realizado tanto a partir de los modelos teóricos propuestos por la psicología cognitiva y, en concreto, de la teoría del procesamiento de la información (p. I.), Como desde la perspectiva de la teoría clásica de los tests. Los resultados presentados en este trabajo, obtenidos con una muestra compuesta por 383 varones y 268 mujeres estudiantes universitarios, han puesto en evidencia que la prueba satisface ampliamente los criterios tanto teóricos, en cuanto que ratifican los modelos explicativos de esta dimensión, como los criterios empíricos de fiabilidad y validez. Asimismo, el test aporta mediciones de los individuos tanto de su nivel aptitudinal como de rapidez y precisión en la ejecución de los procesos cognitivos subyacentes a las tareas de relaciones espaciales simples.

    ABSTRACT: The balance between visual-spatial and verbal-logical thought may determine "mathematical casts of mind" that influence how an individual processes mathematical information. Thus, to investigate the role that spatial thinking plays in learning, problem solving, and gender differences in high school geometry, spatial thought was examined along with its counterpart verbal-logical thought. The results suggest that whereas males and females differed in spatial visualization and in their performance in high school geometry, they did not differ in logical reasoning ability or in their use of geometric problem-solving strategies. There was evidence of gender differences in profiles of those mental abilities that are important for geometry performance and of a teacher-by-gender interaction on geometry achievement.

    ABSTRACT: Spatial Orientation ability correlates with important criteria such as achievement in calculus and physics, but this ability has not been investigated systematically. Performance on individual items adapted from a standard test of Spatial Orientation was studied. Subjects judged whether aerial views would be seen by an observer oriented in various ways. For practiced subjects, the time to answer items was an approximately linear function of the number of abstract spatial dimensions on which the aerial view and the observer's orientation were consistent. Practice led to lower error rates and lower intercepts for the response-time functions. Subject's ability correlated with the linearity of their response-time functions suggesting that lower ability subjects fail to code one or more spatial dimensions. A model specifying serial, self-terminating comparison of abstract spatial dimensions is proposed as an ideal which subjects approach after practice.
