The impact of noise in school buildings on students’ academic achievement
Abstract: The objectives of the problem under study were to bring forth the impact of noise in school buildings, and, to determine and evaluate its effect. To conduct this empirical study, hundred students of Intermediate part-I from each of Government Higher Secondary Schools as well as Government Degree Colleges from four districts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa were selected as sample. The study was delimited to the subject of English with a teaching duration of three weeks. Academic qualifications and training backgrounds of instructors of respective institutes were considered to be equal. To set a baseline about the academic level of students in this post-test only design, their marks in the subject of English at Secondary level were considered. Prior to the commencement of the study, detailed information on the selected variable was obtained by carefully filling the specifically designed checklist in a walk through survey for the post occupancy evaluation of selected buildings. After three weeks, the academic achievement of students was evaluated through post test.
Data obtained through aforementioned tools was analysed; the Mean, Variance, Standard Deviation, Standard Error of Mean, Correlation and T-test were computed, interpretations were made, and, all the information was presented through tables and graphs.
Findings of the study revealed a considerable impact of the noise on student’s academic achievement. Results of walk-through survey, while revealing interesting facts about institutional buildings, also endorsed the findings.

Abstract: This paper attempts to further explore autism in terms of its definition, symptoms and causes, with the aim of putting an end to the changing profile on this issue which reflects continual change of ideas about autism in general and about its causes in particular. In order to get to more understanding and a wariness about autism, this paper tries to answer some questions of concern, ranging from defining autism , its recognition, its main characteristics, its causes and the effective ways of counseling children with autism. By answering such questions, this paper does not pretend to be one of its kinds; rather it is intent to stir up debates on how to get a unified scientifically-based view which lead to more accurate results and to involve scholars from other fields of concern. This, in turn will help fulfill the ultimate goal of all those of concern i.e., to arrive at the best ways of treatment and counseling for the children and students of autism. This paper has been able to answer all the questions raised at the beginning, but it also recommends that further and more profound studies are highly recommended and needed.
