Abstract Four meta-analyses examined relationships between morningness and cognitive ability (total N = 2177), eveningness and cognitive ability (total N = 1519), morningness and academic achievement (total N = 3220), and eveningness and academic achievement (total N = 700). The analyses focused on the population effect size (to reveal the effect across studies) and the homogeneity (to determine if the results of the several experiments are sufficiently similar to warrant their combination into… Expand

The role of chronotype, gender, test anxiety, and conscientiousness in academic achievement of high school students
TLDR
The results suggest that gender is an essential predictor of academic achievement even stronger than low or absent test anxiety, and chronotype as moderator revealed a significant association between gender and GPA for evening types and intermediate types, while intermediate types showed a significant relationship between test anxiety and GPA.

Chronotype correlates with developmental index, intelligence and academic achievement: A study based on nationwide indicators
  • C. Randler
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Chronobiology international
  • 2017
TLDR
The relationship between M/E and nationwide available data, such as economic variables, school achievement, intelligence and conscientiousness, which is a personality trait, was analysed, finding that conscientiousness was related to morningness, although the results failed the significance level marginally.

Prediction of School Achievement by Conscientiousness , Test Anxiety , Gender , and Intelligence : The Unique Role of Chronotype
In order to extend our knowledge about school achievement and particular chronotype’s role, three studies were carried out with a grand total of 695 students. Study 1 dealt with investigatingExpand
Association between circadian preference and academic achievement: A systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
The present results suggest that evening orientation is associated with a worse academic performance, both in school pupils and university students; for the first time, it has been shown that such relationship changes over time, being weaker in university students. Expand
The influence of chronotype and intelligence on academic achievement in primary school is mediated by conscientiousness, midpoint of sleep and motivation
TLDR
This is the first study in primary school pupils and it shows that the relationship between evening orientation and academic achievement is already prevalent at this age even when controlling for important predictors of achievement. Expand
Prediction of school achievement through a multi-factorial approach – The unique role of chronotype
Abstract The present study examined the predictability of school achievement with variables from biosocial, cognitive, and psychological domains: gender, chronotype, intelligence, andExpand
Social jetlag, academic achievement and cognitive performance: Understanding gender/sex differences
TLDR
Results separated by sex/gender indicated that SJL may be more detrimental to girls’ performance, as it was negatively related to a greater number of cognitive abilities and GPA. Expand
Chronotype, class times, and academic achievement of university students
TLDR
It is confirmed that morning chronotypes attain better grades than evening chronotypes, although the association is weak (r2 = 0.02), and the difference persisted even after the time of day of classes and exams was taken into consideration. Expand
The relationship between chronotype and depressive symptoms: A meta-analysis.
  • J. Au, J. Reece
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Journal of affective disorders
  • 2017
TLDR
Findings from this meta-analysis indicate an eveningness orientation is somewhat associated with more severe mood symptoms and Chronobiological approaches may contribute to the prevention and treatment of depressive disorders. Expand
Morningness–eveningness and performance-based emotional intelligence
The aim of the present article is to determine whether recently shown positive relationships between self-reported emotional intelligence (EI) and morningess preference exist when EI is measured withExpand

TLDR
It may be concluded that chronic sleep reduction may affect school achievement directly and indirectly via functioning at school, with worse school marks as a consequence. Expand
Morningness-Eveningness Correlates with Verbal Ability in Women but Not Men
TLDR
The present study examined the correlation between Morningness-Eveningness with scores on the Wechsler Abbreviated Scale of Intelligence (WASI) of 54 healthy volunteers and found lower Morningness (i.e., Greater Eveningness) orientation was correlated with higher Verbal IQ for the entire sample.

TLDR
Adolescents tested at their nonoptimal times of day and adolescents who are Evening-types appear to be at risk for poor academic performance and Evening-type adolescents appear to been atrisk for behavioral adjustment problems. Expand
