Title:
The Role of Spatial, Verbal, Numerical, and General Reasoning Abilities in Complex Word Problem Solving for Young Female and Male Adults
Abstract:
This study analyzed the relative importance of different cognitive abilities for solving Complex mathematical Word Problems (CWPs)---a demanding task of high relevance for diverse fields and contexts. We investigated the effects of spatial, verbal, numerical, and general reasoning abilities as well as gender on CWP-performance among N = 1282 first-year university engineering students. Generalized linear mixed models unveiled significant unique effects of spatial ability, β = 0.284, verbal abil...    »
