Abstract
This study was designed to examine the effects of watching television on the amount of time it takes to complete a given assignment. Twenty participants were given an assignment to complete and were timed. Half of the participants were exposed to television while the other half of the participants were not. Significant differences were found between the two groups such that exposure to television significantly lengthened the amount of time it took to complete the given assignment.
