3 546 / College Student Journal Table 1. Descriptives and correlations Variable Mean SD Correlations with Age AcaYear GPA Average number of people text messaged per day Average number of text messages sent per day Average number of text messages received per day Average number of people spoken to on cell phone per day Average number of calls made per day Average number of calls received per day Average number of times the cell phone is checked Comfort text messaging in class iv=118 *p<0.05 **p< * -.219* ** -.209* * * -.212* ** saging in class. The response format for this question was simply yes or no and coded as 1 and 0, respectively. After completing the survey, participants were debriefed and thanked for their participation. Results The means, standard deviations, and correlations regarding all of the variables examined are presented in Table 1. These results revealed negative correlations between GPA and the number of texts an individual sends, r(112)= -.211, p=.026 as well as GPA and the number of texts an individual receives, r(l 11)= -.212,p Contrary to our expectations, GPA was positively correlated with being comfortable text messaging in class, r(l 18)=.258, p=.005. Furthermore, academic year was negatively correlated with the number of text messages sent, r(l 12)= -.263, p=.005, the number of texts received, r(117)= -.209, p=.028, and the average number of times per day an individual checks his or her cell phone for text messages, r(102)= -.203, p=.041. In addition, the variable of age was negatively correlated with the average number of people an individual text messages per day, r(il3)=-.203,p=.031. Age was also negatively correlated with the number of text messages sent per day, K112)=-.219,p=.020. We also examined the average number of phone calls participants make or receive and the average number of different people participants call in an average day. These variables did not significantly correlate with GPA, academic year, or age. Finally i-tests examining gender differences on all variables revealed no significant effects.

6 Cell Phone Use and Grade Point Average... / 549 impact of cell phone use within academic settings. Perhaps this study will enable students to be more aware of the long term impacts of using a cell phone while in class or studying on their overall grade point averages. Furthermore, we believe that our research can help educators and school policy makers formulate well informed and appropriate decisions regarding the possession and use of these communication devices in the classroom.
