Local Studies:
One of the past local studies that is relevant to our research was made way back 2009. I think it has something to help in our current issues about our researches.
On December 5, 2009, Mapua Institute of Technology finalized their research named “The effects of Computer Addiction to the Academic Performances of Mapua Institute of Technology First year Students”. It seems like familiar or should I say Same Title but in our research we include Computer Games Addiction and also its effect on academic performance on selected freshmen CCIS students. This research was made by 4 Mapua Students. In their research, they interviewed 16 first year students about study habits and computer addiction. As the survey results, 11 participants were classified computer addicts. The results of that survey back 2009 showed that computer addicts spends more time playing computer than studying. Their research also concluded that computer addiction have lead students to have a declining grade on their academic performances of first year students in the said University. With the help of this past research, we can make our research stronger and more useful. It will give us more information and ideas that are related to what are the goals we want to achieve.
