Sleep Soundly


College students are constantly torn between a social life and an academic life. The erratic and crazy lifestyle that they live is one of a kind, and the things they do can greatly affect their grades. One of the things that many people believe is that better quality of sleep can lead to better grades in school. Through this experiment we tried to find statistical significance to support the hypothesis that lower sleep debt would relate to a higher GPA. We analyzed the surveys of 68 students, 39 women and 29 men, to rate sleep debt and record their associated GPA. After collecting the data we conducted a four-way ANOVA and failed to reject the null. We were unable to find a positive correlation between good sleep hygiene and GPA.
