The Effects of Television on Students Studying Habits


In the last several years much research has been devoted the subject of television and children. Many of these studies have focused on whether television, particularly violent or aggressive *****, has a negative effect on viewers including children (Charlton, 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 ***** been relatively little ***** thus far examining ***** impact ***** television on older students, particularly with regard to their study habits. This research will help fill the gap in literature that currently exists by explor*****g the effects ***** has on student's studying ***** and educational achievement.

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


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


This study involved assessment of 20 ***** ages 15-24. The ***** adopted for the study were primarily close-ended providing concise answers and enabling the researcher more ability to empirically analyze the results. Reja et al. (2003) suggest that this design has more potential to limit bias associated with open-ended questions. Studies also suggest that close-ended questions "generally yield higher percentages" and response rates than ***** 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 ***** explicit detail. Subject participants were *****d with detailed written instructions prior ***** participation.


***** results of the ***** suggest that roughly 45% ***** 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 more hours ***** television per day.
