Team Cognitive Training

Improving Quantitative Reasoning by Training

Visuo-Spatial Working Memory


Research problems
Research Problems

  • US students underperform

  • Cognitive ability declines with age

  • Improve understanding of brain

  • Working memory as solution


Working memory
Working Memory

  • Apply knowledge using general fluid intelligence (gF) to solve problems

  • gF = short-term memory + working memory (WM)

  • WM = ability to maintain and manipulate information

WM

Long-term memory


Visuo spatial wm
Visuo-Spatial WM

  • WM = visuo-spatial + auditory + central executive

  • Visuo-spatial WM  math skills

  • Train visuo-spatial WM to improve quantitative reasoning


Hypotheses
Hypotheses

  • Cognitive Ability  Quantitative Reasoning

  • Cognitive Ability Can Be Trained

    • Plastic quality of the brain

    • Training transfer

  • Quantitative Reasoning Can Be Improved Through Cognitive Training


  • Methodology
    Methodology

    • Recruit Participants

    • Pre-Test

    • Training

      • Experimental Group: ABST

      • Control Group: Sentential

    • Mid-Point Check-In

    • Post-Test

    • Analysis

    How we ll measure it
    How We’ll Measure It

    • Adaptive Block Span Task

    • Raven’s Progressive Matrices

    • Math Assessment

    • Modular Arithmetic Task

    • Verbal Learning Task

    • Reading Span

    • Perceptual Speed Tasks

    • Stroop Task

    Status: Completed

    • IRB

    • Grant

    • Task Programming

    • Plans

      • Methodology

      • Data Collection

      • Data Analysis

        Ready for …


    Data collection
    Data Collection

    • Pilot testing this semester

    • Real testing next semester

    • Each task has a scoring algorithm.

      • Analyze/Compare results from pre and post-tests in respect to training.


    Team composition and process
    Team Composition and Process

    • 6 members

    • Everyone does equal work

      • Ex. All helped program tasks

    • No subgroups

    • Work collectively


    Advice for future teams
    Advice for Future Teams

    • Small team is good

      • Division of work

      • Accountability

      • Everyone understands the project

      • Easier to coordinate

      • Tight knit group


    Conclusion
    Conclusion

    • We’re in good shape 
