ARAUJO, Danilo de Freitas  e  ALMONDES, Katie Moraes de. Evaluation of sleepiness in college students from different shifts. Psico-USF [online]. 2012, vol.17, n.2, pp. 295-302. ISSN 1413-8271.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1413-82712012000200013.

Undergraduate students are a population with high chances of developing Excessive Daytime Sleepiness, due to school schedules and academic demands. Our aim was to examine the levels of sleepiness of students belonging to morning and night classes. The universe has consisted of 109 undergraduate students of the morning shift and 125 of the night shift. We have used the Epworth Sleepiness Scale. The sample had an average of 9.38 (SD=4.03), and 9.03 (SD=4.01) for the morning shift and 9.7 (SD=3.93) for the night shift. Statistical analysis showed significant differences in sleepiness between shifts (η2=0,10; p<0,00), and among male subjects and female in the two shifts (η2=0,45; p<0,00). It should therefore be considered the role of academic demands, since they are directly affecting the quality of sleep and the demands inherent to women.
