Abstract: This research investigated the role of representational guidance during the construction of argumentative diagrams. We used a design that compared two tools that differed with respect to the representational guidance they offered: The Graphical Debate-tool offered more guidance than the Textual Debate-tool. The results show that groups that worked with the Graphical Debate-tool constructed representations of higher quality, wrote better essays, and performed better on a knowledge post-test.
