The sample was in the age range of 10 to 14 years and the mean age was 12.56 years. Method Monkey ladder and rotation tests were used to assess the short-term memory and visuo-spatial ability of the students respectively. Statistical analysis The pre-test and post-test data was collected and the scores were analysed using repeated measure ANOVA. results Showed that there was a significant improvement in the short-term memory, visuo-spatial ability and academic performance of students after the implementation of SBY.
