Summary

Students in science and non-science departments of the State University College, Buffalo, were given the Survey of Object Visualization, a test designed to measure aptitude to visualize objects when disassembled and in various positions. Science majors scored significantly higher than non-science students. Within the science group, different bands of scores were associated with the student's major. Physics students tended to score highest, followed, in order, by geoscientists, biologists and chemists. There was a high correlation between Survey of Object Visualization and science grades. The results suggest that three dimensional conceptualization tests could be included in test batteries given to prospective college science students to facilitate counseling. (AL)
