The study intended to compare the effectiveness of the two distinctive methods of measuring the school buildings' thermal performance using a classroom block as a specimen. The building under study is located in the Birnin-kebbi area of the Kebbi state of Nigeria. The methods are Design builder, energy efficiency software (Computer Simulation), and Hobo Data-logger (Physical temperature measurement). At the end of the analysis, the two instruments' output was further scrutinized using the SPSS package for correlation. The two results show a positive and significant relationship at 0.05 (p<0.05). However, based on the established strong relationship between the two approaches, it is concluded that either technique can be employed to measure the building's thermal performance and yield a satisfactory result, provided the procedures are maintained and followed judiciously.
