The Impact of Mental Imagery Ability on 2D Drawings’ Three-Dimensional Perception: A Case Study Utilizing the Cube Teaching Method


The primary focus of this study revolves around evaluating students' performance on stereo image sequence through drawing. Employing a quasi-experimental design, the research involves an experimental group that taught cube rotation training and a control group taught using the conventional hand-drawn reference frame. Throughout the course, a series of assessments were administered, including spatial ability test, OSIVQ, the group embedded figures test, and pre- and post-tests for stereo image sequences through drawing. The findings of the study revealed several noteworthy points. Firstly, the cube rotation training exhibited a significantly positive impact on the students' performance on stereo image sequence. Secondly, following the cube rotation training, significant differences emerged in the cube mental imagery among students with different object cognitive preferences. Thirdly, after the cube rotation training, differences in spatial ability did not significantly influence performance on stereo image sequence and cube mental imagery generated. Finally, among those who taught by cube rotation training, field-independent students demonstrated a tendency for image deconstruction and Imaginary of cube mental imagery. In contrast, field-dependent painters tended to primarily respond to images directly in front of them, facing greater difficulty in mentally generating cube imagery.
