Paraphrasing One of the Sources of our Research

Weimer’s (2009) article on the length of concentration of the students pointed some of the conducted research were based on the notes taken by the students during classes hours. Their attention were observed through the willingness of the students to take down some materials they have been discussing in class, considering that the lesser notes they take, the nominal level of concentration. Yet according to some studies even though students take lesser notes over the time, students memory of the important lesson did not. Though many research were conducted according to the attention level of the students, still “none of this says that students listen well in class”.
