Various studies agree on attention span during lectures -

 

•the settling-down period takes 3-5 minutes

 

•the next lapse of attention usually occurs 10-18 minutes into the lecture

 

•as the lecture proceeds the attention span becomes shorter

 

•falls to 3-4 minutes at the end of the lecture
