The arrangement of a computer class is as important as a traditional classroom layout. In recent years, as in traditional classrooms, environmental features of these classrooms, such as size, form, color, light, texture, etc., have a direct impact on students' perception, class participation, motivation, and concentration. This study aims to explore how various hues, values, and saturations of wall colors, representing a key environmental feature of a computer
classroom, affect students' spatial perception. Saturated, medium, dark, and light colors of red, blue-green, and purple hues, totaling twelve colors, were determined from the Munsell Color System for the wall colors of the classroom. The classroom was visualized using these selected wall colors and presented to the students. Subsequently, they were asked to evaluate the visualizations through a semantic differential scale comprising fifteen bipolar items. The results revealed that students perceived high-value and saturated colors across all hues positively, describing them as pleasant, warm, and cheerful. Medium colors were viewed negatively, characterized by descriptions such as 'lifeless, dull, incomprehensible, unpleasant, ugly.' Dark colors received positive assessments, described as "pleasant, beautiful, clean, and bright" but were also associated with negative descriptions like 'gloomy, boring, passive, and dark.' Additionally, similar perceptions emerged among saturated, medium, light, and dark colors of all hues. This outcome suggests that even when color hues differ, similar values and saturations can evoke similar perceptions in spatial color perception.
