The role of chronotype, gender, test anxiety, and conscientiousness in academic achievement of high school students

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.

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 investigating

Association between circadian preference and academic achievement: A systematic review and meta-analysis

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.

The Relationship Among Chronotype, Hardiness, Affect, and Talent and Their Effects on Performance in a Military Context.

Individual preference for morning or evening activities (chronotype), affect, hardiness, and talent are associated with a variety of performance outcomes. This longitudinal study was designed to

The influence of chronotype and intelligence on academic achievement in primary school is mediated by conscientiousness, midpoint of sleep and motivation

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.

Social jetlag, academic achievement and cognitive performance: Understanding gender/sex differences

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.

Chronotype, class times, and academic achievement of university students

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.



Circadian preferences and personality traits: A meta‐analysis

In this study we report results of a meta‐analysis of studies linking personality to circadian rhythms. A total of 35 independent samples, 96 correlations and 8589 participants were included. Results

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.

Morningness-Eveningness Correlates with Verbal Ability in Women but Not Men

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.

Improving Task Performance: The Relationship Between Morningness and Proactive Thinking1

Proactivity and morningness have been variables of considerable study. Although many studies have examined the impact of either proactivity or morningness on performance, none have examined the

The Relationships between Sleep-Wake Cycle and Academic Performance in Medical Students

The results suggest that chronotypes influence the quality of the sleep-wake cycle and that irregularity of the Sleep Quality Index, as well as sleep deprivation, influence the learning of college students.
