Unformatted text preview: To collect data on how multitasking with these technologies interferes with the learning process, a carefully-designed study was conducted at a mostly residential large public university in the Northeast United States. Junco, R. In-class multitasking and academic performance. Computers in Human Behavior (2012) At the beginning of a semester a group of students who were US residents admitted through the regular admissions process and who were taking the same courses were selected based on their high use of social media and the similarities of their college GPA's. The selected students were randomly assigned to one of 2 groups: group 1 students were told to text and use Facebook during classes in their usual high-frequency manner; group 2 students were told to refrain from any use of texting and Facebook during classes. At the conclusion of the semester the semester GPA's of the students were collected. The results are shown in the table below. IN-CLASS MUTLITASKING STUDY Frequent Facebook Use and Texting |No Facebook Use or Texting X1 = 2.87 X2 = 3.16 $1 = 0.67 52 = 0.53 n1 = 65 n2 = 65 Question 1. Do texting and Facebook use during class have a negative affect on GPA? To answer this question calculate a 95% confidence interval for /1-12 where /j is the mean semester GPA of all students who text and use Facebook frequently during class and //2 is the mean semester GPA of all students who do not text or use Facebook during class. .50 lower limit of confidence interval (use 2 decimal places) -.08 upper limit of confidence interval (use 2 decimal places). Question 2. Choose the correct interpretation of the confidence interval in question 1. (2 submissions allowed) Since the confidence interval is entirely negative it appears that students who text and use Facebook during class have a lower GPA than students who do not text and use Facebook during class. O Since the confidence interval is entirely negative it appears that students who text and use Facebook during class have a higher GPA than students who do not text and use Facebook during class. Since the confidence interval is entirely negative it appears that students who do not text and use Facebook during class have a lower GPA than students who text and use Facebook during class....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
