Blurting out answers can be good
(2 February 2012)
Pupils who blurt out answers in class often learn more than their quieter classmates, according to new research.
Test results from hundreds of schools across England show a surprising advantage for pupils with symptoms of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD); pupils who shout out answers attain better results than pupils who have similar symptoms but remain quiet and interrupt less.
