    New Study: How does screen time affect grades?

    From Daniel Je

    What effects can phone screen time have on students? At first glance, it may seem harmless but when we decided to take a closer look, we found a strong correlation between too much phone time and lower grades.

    With 95% of Americans owning a cell phone of some kind and actually 77% of them owning a smartphone (according to pewinternet), the topic of phone time and its potential effects comes into question.

    So, we asked undergraduate university/college students what their daily phone screen time was the last 7 days and their current grade to see if there could be any correlation between them.

    Methodology

    Our survey consisted of 875 undergraduate post-secondary students (1st-year students aged 17-19) from a number of US schools.

    To keep the survey simple, respondents were asked what their daily phone screen time was the last 7 days and their current grade.

    From the results, there were many findings, especially once we dug a little deeper into the data…SNIP
