Does Eating Breakfast Affect the Performance of College Students on Biology Exams?
Phillips, Gregory W.
Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, v30 n4 p15-19 Dec 2005
This study examined the breakfast eating habits of 1,259 college students over an eleven year period to determine if eating breakfast had an impact upon their grade on a General Biology exam. The study determined that there was a significant difference in the performance on the exam with a higher percent of the participants, who had eaten breakfast passing the exam. The study found that only 65.6 percent of the students participating in the study had eaten breakfast. This finding supports the results of several other studies that people of college age show an increase in the percent skipping breakfast over individual of a younger age. (Contains 3 figures.)
