Graph showing proportion correct on Topographic Map Assessment for groups by item-type for Experiment 1. Bar graph showing proportion correct on the Topographic Map Assessment in the Pointing and Tracing group, 3D Gestures and Models group, Text-based Instruction group, and No Instruction group broken down by item-type (elevation versus shape items) from Experiment 1. Cohen’s d’s for all pairwise comparisons are as follows: elevation versus shape items for the Pointing and Tracing group (d=0.30), elevation versus shape items for the 3D Gestures and Models group (d = 0.57), and elevation versus shape items for the No Instruction group (d = 0.34). *p < .05
