This study focused on various treatments for addressing the classroom misbehavior of sleeping during class. The findings revealed that students found some methods of addressing this problem behavior by the instructor more acceptable than other methods of treating the behavior. College students rated the most acceptable instructor treatment for dealing with a sleeping student as talking to the student privately after class, followed by asking a nearby student to wake up the student, and making a loud noise to wake up the sleeping student.
