NNAT Spatial Visualization

The “Spatial Visualization” section in the NNAT assesses one’s ability to predict visual configurations resulting from design combination or rotation. Additionally, this segment customarily presents each question as a set of three images arranged horizontally. The core challenge revolves around transforming or merging the initial two pictures to create the third one at the end of the row. Furthermore, these transformations encompass various alterations like folding, rotating, or other modifications that alter the visual representation. Consequently, some questions within the test necessitate that test-takers envision and articulate specific changes. These changes involve folding, rotation, or other forms of alteration applied to a given image.

In essence, the “Spatial Visualization” section serves as a tool to evaluate spatial reasoning abilities. Moreover, it places significant emphasis on critical thinking, pattern recognition, and problem-solving skills, all of which are crucial for effective cognitive assessment. To excel in this NNAT segment, we highly recommend thorough preparation and consistent practice, often aided by online resources. Furthermore, the supportive roles of parents, guardians, and educators are pivotal, as their guidance, encouragement, and dedication to nurturing spatial visualization skills can substantially contribute to a test-taker’s proficiency and success in this evaluative context.

For effective practice, explore Testing Mom’s “Interactive Practice and Games” section, specifically the “Folding Questions” game. It aids in visualizing figure transformations through folding and alterations. These questions cater to different grade levels. Additionally, you can access free practice questions on the Testing Mom website. Below is an illustrative question from the NNAT’s spatial visualization section.

Sample Question:

Parent, tell your child this: Look at the pictures on top. If you combine the first two, it would look like the third picture. Now look at the pictures in the bottom row.

Can you find the answer that shows what the two pictures in the bottom row will look like after they are combined?

Answer: B
