Undergraduate Psychology Research Methods Journal


College is a journey full of living, failing, learning and experiences that brings an individual a little bit further along life. In today’s society, relationships are existent in many universities, and some students may be faced with that exact same dilemma. I decided to do my research project on a comparison of GPA between students who are in a relationship and those we are not. A relationship is defined as follows: a romantic, committed bond between two people for a minimum of a month. I assessed this information by distributing a 10 question survey to 92 undergraduate college students. After inputting my findings into SSPS I discovered that my hypothesis was not supported. The results stating that there is not statistical significance to prove that relationship status has neither a negative or positive effect on one’s GPA.
