What is Studentstupor?
adjective; describes the confused, startled, surprised expression on a students' face, causing a total lapse in memory and ability to speak coherently, mostly occurring within seconds of recognizing he/she has been asked to answer a question. It is a somewhat strange phenomena in that, the just few seconds preceding the question, the student is largely audible, actively animate, and holding much of the room's attention.
Teacher: James, could you tell the class where we look in the Constitution to find anything about Congress?
James: huh? wha..., uh, I dunn...uh, what was the question?
Teacher: Jane, could you answer the question, James seems to be suffering from a bad case of studentstupor -
