Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

This study examined the impact of smartphone addiction on freshman college student grade point averages (GPAs). A correlational analysis examined the GPAs of 65 college students and compared it to their self-reported Smartphone Addiction Inventory scores. While there appears to be an association between increased addiction and decreased GPA, these were not statistically significant. These findings can help explore smartphone addiction and its impact on academic performance.
