Abstract: The study examined the relationship between media multitasking orientation and grade point average. In the quantitative section of the study, the primary method of statistical analyses was multiple regression. Three out of four independent variables, namely, media multitasking orientation, gender and age were statistically significant predictors of Grade Point Average. In the qualitative section of the study, seven participants were interviewed to determine how individual differences in media multitasking orientation manifest themselves in academic settings.
