Clay, Clay-Plastercine Performance Test, Gender, Modelling and Plastercine,
The city of Abuja is blessed with rich tradition of creative modelling because of the availability of the modelling medium i.e clay. The introduction of plastercine a modern creative modelling medium of instruction, posed challenges to the students over the traditional medium. Therefore this study examines the comparative effectiveness of modern and indigenous creative modelling instructional media (clay and plastercine) on the junior secondary creative arts education in Abuja, Nigeria. Gender influence on students’ performances was also examined. Three questions were raised and three hypotheses were tested using Analysis of Covariance. The study adopted quasi experimental design, of pre-test and post-test non-randomized control group. Sample comprised of 90 students drawn from three Junior Secondary Schools. Researchers’ designed instruments of Clay-Plastercine Performance Test (CPPT), Clay substances and Plastercine material were treatment and test instruments. Finding indicated that there is no significant difference between the performance of students taught with clay and plastercine. Student gender was also not a factor in students’ performance. Therefore, the recommendation was made that clay and plastercine should be encouraged for teaching creative modelling in Nigerian Junior Secondary Schools context.
