The amount of time someone spends playing and practicing for a sport, or how much involvement it has with other activities was studied in respect to performance in school. Students were assumed to not do well in school if they were too involved with sports and other extracurricular activities. The students that participated in the research were all from the human subject pool at Lindenwood University. These students were either in a psychology, anthropology, or sociology class to receive extra credit. All of them were administered a ten questions survey in regards to involvement and school. In the study, 28 participants were studied, 16 being males and 12 being females.
