A team of researchers at Utah State University (USU), in partnership with the NFB, has received a grant from the National Science Foundation to support blind and low vision youth in Engineering. One aspect of this work involves measuring and improving spatial ability, a mental skill associated with success in engineering and related fields. The USU research team is currently developing an accessible spatial ability test by adapting an existing instrument into a new, tactile form. In order to establish this test as a reliable instrument, we are looking for blind and low-vision adults, 18 and older, to take the test at the NFB National Convention Monday, July 8th, through Thursday, July 11th, Participation in this study will require about 45 minutes of your time. Compensation will not be provided for participating in this research. If you are interested in participating, please fill out the following form, and we will get in touch to schedule a time. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSehKtX3yXsThXFHFqm1YWvo0p5Fdby5SZmY4GWoeJCGsVHbSA/viewform
