Spatial Reasoning

Spatial reasoning, or spatial visualization, is the ability to mentally manipulate two and three-dimensional objects.

Spatial Reasoning Tests

Spatial reasoning tests determine a person’s capacity to visualize images and twist and turn them to a specific shape, and to draw conclusions about the objects from limited information.

A person’s spatial ability is not influenced by their education, culture, or language, so spatial aptitude tests are one of the most commonly used assessments to gauge cognitive ability.
