    Sambandet mellan fysisk aktivitet, socioekonomisk status och studieresultat för elever på gymnasiet2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to analyse the correlation between physical activity and the grade in physical education, but also the correlation with a weighted grade (Mathematics, Swedish, English and Physical Education) and physical activity (metabolic index). The study further investigates whether there is any correlation between socioeconomic status and physical activity and socioeconomic status with a weighted grade. The study was carried out on high school students from two upper secondary schools in Sweden. 158 students (92 girls, 66 boys) participated in the study. The international activity form, IPAQ, was used to estimate physical activity. The students were asked to give their latest grades in swedish, english, mathematics and physical education, and answer questions related to socioeconomic background factors. The results showed that there was a moderately linear relationship between grades in physical education and physical activity (r = 0.48); and a weak linear relationship between the weighted grade and physical activity (r = 0.30). The result showed that the strongest correlations were found for the socioeconomic index (SEI), both for physical activity and (p <0.001, r = 0.35) and for the weighted grade (p <0.001, r = 0.33). However, there were tendencies that the correlation became stronger when modelling that with increased physical activity the grades would increase, in order to subsequently decrease when the physical activity increased even more. Further research should focus on whether too much focus on physical activity can impede school work.
