Assessment: Achievement Tests

||The Spatial Test Battery (STB), developed by researchers at the Johns Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth, is a collection of subtests that assess various types of visual-spatial ability.
The STB is primarily for individuals who have an interest in, or demonstrated talents in, mathematics, computers, graphic design, and science. However, it may also be of interest to students who excel in the arts and humanities, as it may reveal unrecognized talents of which the student is not aware. Along with an assessment of the verbal and mathematical ability, the recognition of spatial ability provides a more comprehensive profile of talents that can be used for academic and career planning.
