MetadataShow full metadata
This study examined video gaming habits and how that associates with a student's grade point average. A survey was administered to a random sample of Texas State University students. Questions collected students' gaming habits and grade point averages and then correlations were made. Primary analysis focused on how people classify themselves as gamers, what types of games are played and how many hours are spent playing. These key areas are compared with grade point average and how it is affected. Results of the study imply that GPA is virtually unaffected by video game play. It affected, it is in a very minimal negative way.
