Abstract

Classrooms for computer-related courses are intrinsically larger than regular lecture rooms because of the existence of installed PCs as well as network and outlet facilities. Some of the previous studies have investigated the effect of students' seat location on their performance, particularly for large class sizes. In this study we examined the effect of seat location in several computer-related courses. We analysed attendance record with seat location, delay caused by tardiness and student score with factors of distance and direction. Two-way ANOVA test revealed the main effect of 'distance' in a large classroom. We also confirmed a weak correlation between the score and the delay.
