student achievement. 2. There is a positive relationship between time on task and student achievement. This relationship is stronger than the allocated time-student achievement link, but is still modest. 3. There is a strong positive relationship between academic learning time (ALT) and both student achievement and attitudes. 4.   It’s shocking to note that according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the average child under 12 consumes 49 pounds of sugar ’s only three pounds less than the average adult despite children being much smaller.

attendance and achievement are significantly lower in first-period classes than in other periods; this effect is particularly strong for mathematics classes [7]. While these studies begin to shed light on the relationship between time of day and learning, the estimated effects are likely biased due to students’ ability to select their classes.   Because measuring the effects of screen time is so complex, the results of these types of studies often vary based on how the study is conducted and which analytical methods were used.

The question, if, how and under which circumstances student attention during instruction affects their learning process and subsequent academic achievement is a time-honoured one. As early as in , William James devoted 57 pages to the topic of attention. Spend 25% less time listening to lower achieving students than higher achieving students Allow lower achieving students to sit in the back of the classroom where they can be ignored The premise of TESA is that by applying positive teacher-student interaction, academic achievement can be raised.

Anderson () as cited by Tsang, Kwan and Fox () states that meaningful learning can be achieved as long as one of three forms of interaction (student-teacher; student-student; student-content) is.

A case study presented here is an investigation into whether time of day for instruction has an effect on students’ academic achievement in Mathematics, Science, Biology and English at school certificate level by focusing on the grades candidates obtained after sitting for national examinations.

The focus is primarily on 33 randomly. An ex post facto design with random selection of first grade pupils was used. An analysis of covariance on pretest and posttest achievement scores revealed a statistically significant main effect for time-of-day of instruction, but no interaction between time and ability.

Implications for practice and continued research are discussed. Internet searches included "school time," "time on task’" and "instructional time" combined with "student achievement." The first searches focused on research completed within the last 10 years.

When reference lists from the retrieved papers were reviewed, however, it was noted that some older research was repeatedly cited in current works. The study examined the effect of instructional material on the academic performance of students.
