  • 6. It was noted by the examiners that his verbal skills had decreased, but his mathematical skill had significantly increases</li></li></ul><li>Survey Of Loyola University<br />Weak negative correlation between marijuana consumed per month and current GPA (r= -0.27)<br />Weak negative correlation between alcohol consumed per month and current GPA (r= -0.31)<br />Positive correlation between marijuana consumed and classes skipped (r=0.328)<br />
  • 7. Hypothesis<br />Weak negative correlation between the frequencies of drinking and smoking and students averages, math and English marks<br />Students who drink or smoke will feel a decrease in initiative and a significant relief of stress. <br />Students who smoke or drink will be involved in the same amount of extracurricular activities, but will skip more classes in a month. <br />There is no significant difference between the effects of alcohol on academic performance, and the effects of marijuana<br />

  • 14. Hours Spent in Extra Curricular Activities Compared to Frequency of Smoking (r= 0.46)<br />
  • 15. Initiative<br />Alcohol (r= 0.39)<br />Marijuana (r= 0.35)<br />(Scale of 1 to 10, 1 being significantly increases initiative and 10 being significantly decreases initiative)<br />
