Summary

A survey of sound levels was taken in several Texas schools to determine the amount of noise and sound present by size of class, type of activity, location of building, and the presence of air conditioning and large amounts of glass. The data indicate that class size and relative amounts of glass have no significant bearing on the production of sound in a classroom, but that air conditioning, the location of the building with accompanying exterior noise levels, and the nature of classroom activity did have significant effects on sound levels, the last factor being the most influential. School planners should pay more attention to the acoustical environment in an attempt to abate noise levels. (RA)
