A longitudinal assessment of sleep quality is presented. Undergraduates provided two levels of repeated measures data. Sleep log information was gathered across the 7 days of the week, in three replications, over a semester. There were several new findings. Across the week, students spent significantly more time in bed on weekend days as compared with weekdays. Further, a new measure for quality of sleep covaried with the amount of time spent in bed during the week. The students enjoyed their sleep more on the weekends. Finally, both the amount of time in bed and the number of awakenings reported dropped significantly as the semester progressed.
