Abstract

This quasi-experimental study compares preferences for the amount of instructional guidance between creative and non-creative learners. Instructional guidance is implemented as a two-level factor represented as two variants of a visual design task, only differing in the amount of verbal guidance they gave. Dependent preference outcomes were measured using an adapted version of the Web-based Learning Environmental Preference (WLEP) questionnaire by Yang and Tsai. A total of N = 41 students participated: 17 pupils (mean age: 17.6, SD = 3.1) currently enrolled in a creative educational program and 24 pupils (mean age: 21.5, SD = 1.89) from programs unrelated to art. ?2-Tests of dichotomized preference values showed significant less approval of the high-guidance instruction by the creative group (d=0.701; RR = 0.461; OR = 0.234). Results suggest a relation between learning in a creative domain and low-guidance forms of instruction that should be taken in account when designing online instruction for this domain.
