Title: Student Performance of Daylit Schools

URL: http://www.innovativedesign.net/perf.htm

Abstract: The conclusions of a research project on the impacts of full-spectrum light on student performance and health prompted Innovative Design to investigate the performance of students attending three daylit schools that were designed by Innovative Design. The 1992 "Study into the Effects of Light on Children of Elementary School Age: A Case of Daylight Robbery" was conducted in Alberta, Canada, by the Policy and Planning Branch of Alberta Education. Over a two-year period, the study compared children attending elementary schools with full-spectrum light versus children attending similar schools with normal lighting conditions.
