The Impact of Extracurriculurs on Academic Performance and School Perception
Furda, Mark; Shuleski, Michael
Excellence in Education Journal, v8 n1 p64-90 Win 2019
As a result of budget cuts, accessibility to school extracurricular activities has been hindered. Students in one high school were classified as participants in extracurricular activities or nonparticipants. The groups were surveyed about perceptions of school; student grade point averages were obtained. Four independent samples t-tests were conducted to compare differences in school perception and differences in grade point averages. The results of all three t-tests relating to school perception demonstrated significantly more positive perceptions among participants than non-participants. The results of the t-test comparing grade point averages show a significantly higher grade point average among participants when compared to nonparticipants.
