Acoustic modifications, Reverberation time, Sound level
Seminars in Hearing
The audiologist is often called upon to identify whether or not classroom acoustic conditions are appropriate for listening and learning. This article provides an overview of the methods that can be used by the audiologist to document acoustic conditions in a classroom. Specifically, procedures that can be used to establish signal-to-noise ratio, background noise level, and reverberation time are considered. Finally, typical recommendations to improve classroom acoustic conditions are discussed.
