TV Effects

The ***** of Television on Students Studying Habits

Introduction

***** the last several years much research has been devoted the subject of television and children. Many ***** these studies have focused on whether television, particularly violent or aggressive television, has a negative effect on viewers including children (Charlt*****, et al. 2000; Johnson, 2001; Newhagen, 1998). Still others ***** reviewed the impact of television on younger children, generally those in preschool classrooms or in elementary school (Fisch & Truglio, 2001; Lesser & Schneider, 2001). There has ***** relatively little research thus far examining the impact ***** televisi***** on older students, particularly with regard to their study habits. This research will help fill the gap in literature that currently exists by expl**********g the effects television has on student's studying habits and educational achievement.

It is vital ***** researchers explore the relationship television viewing ***** on ***** and adolescent study habits. As children get older, *****re is ample evidence suggesting ***** ***** viewing habits increase (Johnson, 2001; *****, 1998). Despite this relatively little research has focused on the ***** such habits may have on children's studying and subsequent performance in school. As educators continue to struggle to find new ways ***** motivate ***** encourage student performance, it is ***** they consider the link between television ***** and ***** study patterns.

Purpose/Hypothesis

The purpose of ***** study is an examination of whether TV ***** a ***** impact on students studying. The author hypothesizes that TV watching has a neg*****tive impact ***** students *****. To examine th***** *****eory the researcher will explore ***** following questions: (1) do ***** ***** TV feel television has a negative ***** on studying, (2) how many hours ***** average of TV are students watching per day (3) do students realize the negative impacts television viewing ***** on studying (4) what ***** students overall perceptions of television.

Metho*****logy

***** study involved assessment of 20 ***** ages 15-24. The questions adopted for the study were primarily close-ended providing concise answers ***** enabling the researcher more abil*****y to empirically analyze the results. Reja et al. (2003) suggest ***** this design has more potenti***** to limit bias associated with open-ended questions. Studies also suggest that close-ended questions "generally yield higher percentages" and response rates than open-ended questions ***** are more likely to promote response because of the "apparent ease ***** alternatives offered participants" (Reja, et al., 2003:2). Further evidence suggests that ***** questions provide ***** opportunities for explicit detail. Subject participants were *****d with detailed written instructions prior to participation.

Results

The results of the ***** suggest that roughly 45% of students are impacted *****ly by watching too much TV. 26% of participants watched 2-3 hours ***** TV per day and 34% reported watching 4-6 ***** of ***** per day. This suggests more than 60% of ***** watch 3 or m*****e hours of ***** per day.
