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
what we re measuring

  • 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 
