Title : Factors that affect academic performance in Grade 9: Focus on video games
Description : In response to concerns expressed by high school counsellors, the researchers developed a Likert-scale survey to examine the relationship between video gaming and academic performance (defined as school attendance and final grades) in grade 9. Questions about video gaming were included with other questions about school experiences, self-concept, peer relationships, parental support, and nonacademic activities other than video games. The data analysis revealed correlations between non-educational video gaming, academic performance, and other school experiences. Other interesting correlations involved self-concept, peer relationships, parental support, and nonacademic activities other than video games. The researchers recommend that school professionals advise parents and students of the potentially deleterious effects of playing video games.
