Summary

This study compared various instructional practices and problems in open plan classrooms with practices and problems in conventional plan school buildings. One secondary and three elementary schools having open plan classrooms were each paired with a comparable school having conventional classrooms. Instruments were used to record: teaching techniques, psychological climate, social organization, order maintaining techniques, provisions for individual differences, and activities utilized in the instructional program. A sound survey was conducted in each of the schools to determine the amount of noise transmitted between instructional areas or rooms, and sound level readings were taken during instructional periods to ascertain actual classroom noise levels. The evidence gained in this investigation indicated that noise is not a problem in open space schools. (Author)
