The development of three-dimensional Computer

Aided Design 3D CAD technology has

additionally spurred research into spatial ability to

find the ways for its enhancement through teaching

and instruction and to understand the mechanism

of its assessment. The techniques involved in

multimedia engineering environment of today as

well as their inclusion into engineering curricula

and courses have to be strongly supported by wider

knowledge of spatial ability.

This paper i

s a review of research results applied to

engineering graphics education by respecting

spatial ability as a recognized predictor of success

in engineering. The development of engineering

graphics teaching based on research suggestions

about spatial ability represents an increasingly

complex approach that puts additional stress on

engineering graphics educators. Thus classical

tests for the assessment of spatial ability are

described, the applied strategies for their solving

are presented, the selected obtained results are

compared, and a distinction is drawn between the

strategies employed for more complex spatial tasks

that engineering is dealing with.
