A longitudinal study assesses research subjects over two or more points in time; by contrast, a cross-sectional study assesses research subjects at only one point in time so case-control, cohort, and randomized studies are not cross-sectional.

Before the High Middle Ages, homosexual acts appear to have been tolerated or ignored by the Christian church throughout Europe.

Compared to other extracurricular activities, however, athletics does not appear to produce as strong a positive correlation. At the third-grade follow-up, the control group scored significantly higher in math and science achievement than the pre-k group.

Even today, there is inconsistent evidence, but most research tends to lean toward the idea that participation in athletics does, in fact, improve academic performance. The nature of this type of analysis tends to overestimate the degree of association between variables.

A longitudinal study assesses research subjects over two or more points in time; by contrast, a cross-sectional study assesses research subjects at only one point in time so case-control, cohort, and randomized studies are not cross-sectional.

The data revealed that, according to the students surveyed, playing sports, watching television, and participating in community service improves academic performance, while playing a musical instrument does not improve academic performance.
