一个学生在课堂上的定位是从老师收到问题的数量关系，这可能会影响学生的回应的机会，从而学习（穆尔和格林1984）。在教室里安排座位时，教师可以考虑学生的动机和成绩的影响。座位位置会对学生的表现、行为和注意力跨度产生很大的影响。令人惊讶的是，发现学生在教室的后面往往彼此更比那些坐在前面的互动，有可能产生不利影响的关注手头的任务（grandstrom 1996）。教师应该花更多的时间组织学习环境，鼓励学生取得更大的成就。然而，这一问题将在小学和初中阶段是频繁的，留下三级学生负责，足够的决策和课堂参与。在小学和中学，研究人员坚信，老师应该负责，学生坐而不是三级。这是因为这个年龄组的孩子一般落下（儿童青少年）天生好奇和最初的内在动机[ 1957 ]科恩。他们也有容易分心的危险，因为他们的注意力跨度很短。任何促进者都应该把学生的超然教育作为他们的首要任务。为了使每个学生受益，老师要分清哪些是最好的，然后决定坐在哪里。至于高等教育，学生将成熟到可以决定坐在哪里，以及他们是否做出了正确的决定，使他们在学习过程和学术需求中受益。
A student's location in the classroom is related to the number of questions received from the teacher, this may influence the student's opportunity to respond and thus learn (Moore and Glynn 1984). When making seating arrangements in classrooms teachers may consider the effects of student's motivation and to perform well. Seat location can have a great impact on a student's performance, behaviour and attention span. Surprisingly, students found at the back of the classroom tend to interact with each other more than those seated at the front, potentially adversely impacting their attention to the task at hand (Grandstrom 1996). Teachers should spend more time in organizing their learning environment to encourage more achievements in all students. However this problem would be frequent more in the primary and secondary level, leaving the tertiary level students to be responsible enough about decision making and participation in the classroom.In the primary and secondary school, researchers have strongly believed that teachers should be responsible for where their students sit but not in tertiary level. This is so because children in general falling under this age group (childhood-adolescent) are naturally inquisitive and are initially intrinsically motivated [Kohn 1957]. They are also at the risk of being easily distracted because their attention span is very short. Any facilitator should consider their student's transcendent education to be their main priority. For each lesson taught to be beneficial to each student, the teacher would distinguish what is best for them and decide on where he or she should be seated. As for tertiary level, students would be mature enough to decide where to sit and whether or not they are making a right decision to benefit them in their learning process and academic needs.
