Reduced noise levels improve student behaviour

In the beginning of the day, most students are focused and concentrate. But if they are unlucky to work in classroom with poor acoustic conditions, the students will have more difficulty to concentrate. This results in dysfunctional and disruptive behaviour, followed with progressive rise in noise levels.

Reduced noise levels improve student behaviour

According to a study classroom noise levels have a direct relation to student behaviour. In the study a classroom with "less good" acoustic conditions was analysed during five morning lessons. After this, a sound absorbing ceiling was installed which improved the acoustic conditions. The new conditions were analysed and compared with the previous ones.

The study showed that the dysfunctional’ activities increased over the time period in the classroom with "less good" acoustics, while in the room with improved acoustics, the dysfunctional activities remained approximately the same throughout the morning.

The sound absorbing ceiling installed reduced the overall sound level and activity noise in the classroom. This alter the behaviour of the students in a very postivie way, which related to increased concentration during the lesson.
