summary Outcomes of individual differences of learners are rarely discussed in CAAD education. This paper investigates interactions between architectural students’ cognitive styles, as measured by Riding’s Cognitive Styles Analysis, and their performance in computer aided drafting and design processes. An empirical research revealed that Imager students outperformed Verbalisers in both drafting and creativity scores. Technical quality scores were found to be independent from cognitive styles. Contrary to the assumptions of design theory, Wholist students did not perform better than Analytics in design. The study suggests that examining the cognitive styles of students in CAAD education deserves attention and may facilitate for learning.
