Abstract: By an experimental method the authors determined in which way different view combinations influence the students' understanding of multiview projection drawings. The students had to produce an isometric projection view drawing from a set of displayed orthographic views. The effect of view variation was examined for three combinations of orthographic views: Front and Top view; Front, Top, and Right Side view; and Top and Right Side view presentation. The instrument selected for this experiment was a CAI (Computer Aided Instruction) system that the authors developed for instruction in graphic transformation problems. The means of time-on-task and the correct response rate (CRR) confirmed the apparent preference of Front and Top view pairing by students.
