Effects of Cognitive Styles on 2D Drafting and Design Performance in Digital Media
Pektas, Sule Tasli
International Journal of Technology and Design Education, v20 n1 p63-76 Feb 2010
This paper investigates the interactions between design students' cognitive styles, as measured by Riding's Cognitive Styles Analysis, and performance in 2D drafting and design tasks in digital media. An empirical research revealed that Imager students outperformed Verbalisers in both drafting and creativity scores. Wholist-Analytic cognitive style dimension was found to be independent from drafting and design performance. The study suggests that examining the cognitive styles of students in Computer Aided Design (CAD) education deserves further attention and may facilitate for improvements in learning processes.
