Thanks for your response, but my brain cannot notice with sound or vision who is off-task. Twelve years ago I was told this would "come with experience". Last year I realized that most people can filter out background noise. It was like discovering that I'm the only person who cannot bend steel with my mind. The magic ability to determine who is off-task is not going to arrive, so I need another way to bend steel, some kind of workaround.

What I'm looking for is a technique that can be implemented when quiet signals are ignored by 1/3 of the class, when established procedures no longer work, when sound comes from all directions, and yet individual students all appear to be on-task. At present, all I can do is bark at the class every minute when the noise gets too loud.
