    Effects on educational achievement
    Abstract: Time can be spent in different ways, and time use reflects priorities and predilections, opportunities, and constraints (Medrich et al., 1982). In a study on how adolescents spend time across the world, Larson and Verma (1999) indicated that adolescents in East Asia spend much more time on schoolwork outside of class than their counterparts in the United States; and in contrast, participation in structured extracurricular activities and part-time employment are more common in the West than in the East. Western researchers have long been interested in how adolescents use their after-school time and its overall effect on their development. Many studies have linked adolescents' time spent on homework, structured extracurricular activities, various kinds of leisure involvement, and part-time employment with both their educational achievement and psychological adjustment. However, very little information is available on Chinese students' after-school time pursuits and their associations with academic achievement and psychological well-being. Drawing upon the Western literature and a few studies on East Asian students as references, and utilizing data from a national survey of adolescents in Taiwan, this study explored the relationships of time spent on nine after-school activities (i.e., homework, academic-enrichment programs, private cram schools, school-based extracurricular activities, watching TV, sports, extracurricular reading, Internet games, and part-time employment) to senior high school students' educational achievement and well-being.
