This study aims at investigating the effect of set of indicators mainly gender,age, accumulative average and their related interactions on spatial abilityamong Al-Quds Open University students studying elementary school educationmajor. To achieve this goal, Titus & Horsman test was employed after itsbeing translated into Arabic. Test validity was established by presenting thetranslated test to a group of juries who have good knowledge and experience;whereas reliability was established by computing internal consistency coefficientusing Kauder – Richardson equation which was found to be 0.71.The study was implemented on a sample that consisted of (132) students(25 males and 107 females). Students were selected by using stratified samplefrom the fourth year elementary education majors at Al-Quds Open University-Hebron region registering for the first semester of the academic year2006/2007. Data were analyzed by using three Way ANOVA analysis. Resultsrevealed that there are statistically significant differences in spatial ability thatcan be attributed to two variables, i.e gender for the benefit of male studentsand accumulative average for the benefit of high average group. Resultsalso showed that there are no statistically significant differences that can beattributed to age or to the interaction between these variables.
