title The Use of VR Technology in the Assessment of Applicants to Graduate Schools of Architecture

summary Schools of architecture in North, Central and South America offer admissions on the basis of grade point average and standardized exams on academic aptitude. These indicators may describe the aptitude of students as far as general academic performance is concerned but are limited on describing the creative potential of the applicant. The authors of this paper question this practice and suggest the development of a 3dimensional environment for the assessment of the creative aptitude of future students. The paper also describes the implementation of a prototype of the testing environment and subsequent experimentation.
