Academic Achievement and Television Viewing: The Case of the College Student.
Arafat, Ibtihaj S.; And Others
This study investigated the relationship between work habits, television viewing, and academic achievement. Analysis of a cross-sectional sample of 471 urban college students was performed in two stages. First, data were cross tabulated and chi-square hypothesis tests were performed. The second stage was formulation of a tentative model postulating a number of structural relationships between variables. This model was tested using regression analysis. There appeared to be no evidence that outside work affects students' viewing habits or academic achievement. The amount of television viewing was associated with lower grades but it appeared to be a minor influence when the effects of academic major, course load, and demographic variables were also considered.
