Learning is difficult to study because of the paucity of data and the lack of adequate tools to measure it.In this paper we measure the learning by observing the behavior changes of members of a design team as they work together. The paper presents results from protocol analysis techniques used to quantify behavioral changes. It utilizes an ontological coding scheme for design issues; linkography that examines the interaction and individuals’ design processes; and entropy measurement of linkographs that investigates contributions of individuals. The results show some correlations with changes in behavior

Keywords: Team designing, measurement of learning, protocol analysis.
