Study: Irregular bedtimes for kids affect test scores
July 10, 2013 (WLS) -- Consistent bedtimes for children may be linked to better performance on intellectual tests, according to a study.
Researchers looked at bedtimes and standardized test scores for more than 11,000 children.
They noted that going to bed late did not affect a child's development, but irregular bedtimes were linked to poor scores.
Researchers caution the study simply draws a correlation and is not proof that irregular sleep is a direct driver of lower test scores.
The study is published in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health.
