The purpose of this study is to prove that the quality of the school environment significantly influences students’ academic performance. The factors affecting the work environment are accurate lighting which plays an important role in visual tasks, resulting in either visual comfort or visual fatigue. This study presents the results of lighting objectification of a selected university classroom. Specifically, it focuses on detection of the daylight factor, which is a significant criterion for the amount of daylight in the classroom. Its value is a relative magnitude and depends on the correct spatial layout of the classroom. The results of the study indicate the insufficient values of this indicator. At the end, with a software, the solution for replacing the artificial lighting in the classroom is designed, which is a possible alternative for improving the visual comfort of the classroom.


Keywords –daylighting assessment, visual comfort, daylight illumination coefficient, DIALux.
