Spatial abilities are described as the combination of the skills such as creating mental pictures of objects in the universe, recognizing in different ways and budging these objects as a whole or in pieces individually (Bannatyne, 2003). Forming graphics, interpreting graphics forms an important part of science and experimental studies' base (McKenzie and Padilla, 1986). In this study, the effect of computer software on spatial visualization and graphing skill has been examined. For one group, design of the study is pre test-post test research design. Spatial visualization test (Bodner & Guay, 1997) and Test of Graphing Skills in Science (Mc-Kenzie & Padilla, 1986) have been used as medium of data collection. It has been found out in the study that spatial visualization and graphing skills of candidate teacher have increased meaningfully after the application of computer software.
