Contrast Rendition in School Lighting.
Sampson, Foster K.
Eighteen significantly different classroom lighting systems were measured and analyzed in order to determine how contrasts from different light sources affect the ability to see visual tasks in the school room. Using criteria and techniques established from previous lighting research, the lighting systems are evaluated according to their characteristics regarding contrast rendition of pencil handwriting. The comparisons and conclusions presented should be helpful in selecting classroom lighting systems. (JD)
