    A sincere student may be sincerely dedicated to things other than paying attention in class. I think the word you are seeking is diligent.

    I would say a "diligent" student.

    I think "sincere" is a compliment, but it sounds like he/she is a nice person, in terms of character. But you might get other opinions about that.

    EDIT: That's 3 natives for "diligent". :D

    I would say that in the context of learning, this is an exemplary student.

    If you are looking for one word, I believe it may be "devotion" and as an adjective: devout.

    de·vo·tion n.
    1. Ardent, often selfless affection and dedication, as to a person or principle. See Synonyms at love.
    2. Religious ardor or zeal; piety.
    3. a. An act of religious observance or prayer, especially when private. Often used in the plural.
    b. devotions Prayers or religious texts: a book of devotions.

    4. The act of devoting or the state of being devoted.

    Also, zealot and zealous...but these are sometimes used as qualifiers that are both admirable and excessive.
