Abstract Title: Probing impact of spatial reasoning skills on conceptual understanding of physics
Abstract: This talk will discuss approaches that may allow researchers to probe the extent to which student performance on some physics problems hinges on student ability to visualize and reason spatially.  The degree of association between student performance on physics-specific questions and on a spatial visualization test will be examined and discussed.
