Classroom Acoustics Affect Student Achievement

A new article based on Lauren Ronsse’s PhD work has just come out in Consulting-Specifying Engineer magazine: “Classroom Acoustics Affect Student Achievement”!  There has been a great deal of previous research, indicating how noise in classrooms can impact speech intelligibility; Lauren has taken that link further and shown how it can have an impact on student achievement scores in reading and language areas.  A related article on Lauren’s research may be found through the UNL Digital Commons.

Lauren graduated with her PhD this past May, and is now completing a postdoc at U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center, Construction Engineering Research Laboratory in Champaign, Illinois.
