NEWLY PUBLISHED STANDARD

ANSI/ASA S12.60-2019/Part 4

 American National Standard Acoustical Performance Criteria, Design Requirements, and Guidelines for Schools, Part 4: Acoustic Standards for Physical Education Teaching Environments

Physical education has the potential to significantly impact the cognitive, affective and psychomotor development of today’s youth in unique ways. Effective physical education programs target not only the development of physical skills but also skills that carry over into every aspect of students’ lives.  To meet these challenges of delivering effective physical education programs, it is essential that both architectural and mechanical design provide good acoustical characteristics for gymnasia and outdoor physical learning spaces I which speech communication is an important part of the learning process.

Conformance to the requirements and guidelines of ANSI/ASA S12.60-2019/Part 4 will improve the quality of education by eliminating acoustical impediments for all students and teachers, including those with communication disabilities.

ANSI/ASA S12.60-2019/Part 4 seeks to provide flexibility for the design of physical education learning spaces without compromising the goal of obtaining adequate speech intelligibility for all students and teachers in gymnasia and outdoor physical education learning spaces within the scope of this standard.

This consensus-driven ASA Standard was developed by but not limited to physical education professors and specialists,  audiologists, and architects.
