  • 1. Collegiate student athletes vs. Collegiate student non-athletes
    Ian Schreffler
    Nicole Schiffner
    Benjamin Webb
    Ashley Thorpe
  • 2. Dilemma
    Does being a collegiate student athlete have an effect on a student’s GPA vs. a regular collegiate non-athlete’s GPA?
  • 3. Background Information
    Articles online
    More than 400,000 student athletes participate in organized NCAA sports, as of 2010
    Student athletes need certain GPAs in order to participate in organized sports
    Minimum GPA of 1.8 after freshman year
    Athletes advised to take up majors that are “easier” and where there are clusters of athletes
  • 4. Hypothesis
    Collegiate student athletes have a lower grade point average then students who do not participate in organized NCAA sports.
  • 5. Questions
  • 6. Target Audience
    Scholarly athletes Vs. Non- Athletes
    College Students between the ages of 18-23
    Males Vs. Females
  • 7. Sampling Plan
    Since our group consists of people that both play sports and don’t play sports, we can survey people from all teams and non-athlete college students. We were sure not to ask just friends. To ensure that it was random sampling we went to the sub at different times of the day and handed out surveys until we had enough data.
  • 8. Summary of Respondents
    -Power lifting
    -Field Hockey
    Total of 50 respondents
  • 9. Method of Survey Administration
    Surveys were handed out in the SUB, and in the library.
    We also asked different survey questions than interview questions.
    Does playing sports take away from study time?
    If you didn’t play a sport would you have a higher GPA?
    Are your grades your top priority?
    Is studying for a test a good reason to skip class?
    If an athlete, are sports your top priority?

    • 1 SHT
    • 15. Do Non athletes study more than athletes?
    • 16. Result- Non athletes do study more
    • 17. Do not reject the null
    • 18. Observation is smaller than critical measure, and the A-value is smaller than the P-value
  • Does playing a sport impact GPA
    Line Fit Plot to explain GPA based on if an individual is an athlete or not an athlete
    Null: there is no relationship
    Alternative: there is a relationship
  • 19. Intercept coefficient says Athletes average GPA is a 3.076
    Sport coefficient= slope
    Positive slope
    Non athlete -> athlete GPA rises by .42
  • 20. Regression Stats
    Rsquare= .08
    8% variability in GPA
    Standard error= .70
    70% chance there could be a mistake in the prediction
    Pvalue= .03
    Pvalue< .05 so reject the Null
    There is a relationship between being an athlete or not and GPA. Athletes GPAs are lower.

    • 2 test study time vs. practice
    • 24. Do athletes spend more time studying than at practice?
    • 25. Result- Athletes do not spend more time studying than practicing.
    • 26. Observation is smaller than the critical measure, the P-value is greater than the A-level.
    • 27. Do not reject the null
    • Studying = higher GPA test
    • 28. Are students GPA higher when they spend more time studying?
    • 29. the observation is larger than the critical measure, and the p-value is smaller than the a-level
    • 30. Reject the null
    • 31. Students GPA’s are higher when they study more than 3 hours.
    • 2 test athletes Vs. Non athletes GPA’s
    • 32. Are athletes GPA’s lower than non athletes GPA’s?
    • 33. observation is smaller than then critical measure so reject that, and the p-value is larger than the a-level so you reject that also
    • 34. Do not reject the null
    • 35. Athletes GPA’s are lower than non athletes GPA’s.
  • Conclusion
    Non-athletes study more than athletes.
    Athletes do not spend more time studying than practicing.
    Student’s GPAs are higher when they study for more than 3 hours.
    Athlete’s GPAs are lower than non-athlete’s GPAs!
  • 36. Suggestions
    Gather more data.
    Different colleges
    Test just one major.
    Make more specific.
    Make survey questions more specific.
