ALVAREZ, Miguel Ángel et al. Cognitive Predictors of Academic Achievement in Students from the Industrial Design field. au [online]. 2015, vol.36, n.1, pp. 86-91. ISSN 1815-5898.

The students´ entrance to careers such as Design usually demands a previous skill exam based on notions where they should show visual spatial and perceptive cognitive skills, meaning that this will warrantee their further academic achievement. This paper is a preliminary study on the relationship between cognitive and academic performances, with 82 students from the field of Industrial Design. The aim is to determine which processes could predict the student academic performances. Results showed that these factors are not perceptual skills, but instead there is a special sex-differentiated pattern that relates cognitive flexibility with scores on drawing subjects for female students, and attention processing speed with design scores in males.

Palavras-chave : design; cognitive achievement; cognitive processes.
