Sažetak
The first-year students at Faculty of Engineering University of Rijeka, Croatia were tested on spatial ability before and after one semester of engineering graphics course tuition. Two available classical tests, Mental Rotation Test (MRT) and Guay-Lippa Test (VVT), were utilised for the assessment at mechanical engineering, naval architecture and electrical engineering studies both, undergraduate university and professional. The improvement of student spatial ability has been investigated and analysed after tuition performed in multimedia environment. The comparison of the detected spatial ability for different studies has been made related to initial spatial ability that students approached to the course and related to the achieved gain in tests scores after engineering graphics course. The students with higher initial spatial ability found electrical engineering study both, university and professional appropriate and attractive compared with the studies of mechanical engineering and naval architecture. The gain in scores for the tests administered after in relation to the tests before accomplished engineering graphics course is obvious for all studies and confirmed the development of student spatial ability.
