Study Says Video Games Cause Lower Grades
A recent study has show that video-game systems in dorms cause students to study less and have lower grade-point averages. A study done at the University of Western Ontario found that video-game systems in the dorms led to 40 minutes less time of studying and GPAs 0.241 points lower than average. The students participating in the study tracked their studying, sleeping, partying, working, gaming, and other activities. In the end they found that more studying equals higher grades.
