This paper examines the influence of the thermal and lighting performance in classrooms on the cognitive productivity of students attending public schools in the principal three cities of Colombia: Bogota, Medellin and Cali. The methodology used involves the application of cognitive performance tests and thermal and visual perception surveys, along with measurements of climatic parameters in 34 classrooms of 14 schools in 2017 and 2018. The results were analyzed using transversal correlational regressions. Among the conclusions, this study found that the operative temperature turned out to be the most conclusive variable explaining cognitive performance relationships.
