Students' study time and academic performance can reflect their learning status. This study investigates the relationship between study time and academic performance by analyzing the number of selected courses, study time, and grades provided by open-source data sites. The effect of study time on academic performance was studied using linear regression. Studies have observed a positive relationship between study time and academic performance. When the study time reaches a certain standard, the grade will no longer show a significant change. This paper can assess students' learning status and help them plan their study time reasonably.
