Abstract

This project is being completed in a middle school classroom of 8th grade students. The first unit was comprised of unassigned seating and the second unit was teacher assigned seating. The purpose of this study is to find what is more effective for the students learning. I am evaluating grades as well as the noise level of the classroom. The noise level can be high as long as it is a productive noise level. I am searching for the ideal seating assignment where the grades are up as well as a productive noise level type environment. My methods consisted of the teacher (me) assigning the second unit assigned seats based off what I knew from the students in the first unit of unassigned seats. I also had a noise level rubric I used daily. So far, I have found, in regards to grades there is absolutely no difference at all. The averages of both units were both about 85%.
