  • TITLE: Academic Procrastinators and Their Self-Regulation

    AUTHORS: Seung Won Park, Rayne A. Sperling

    KEYWORDS: Academic Procrastination; Self-Regulation; Active Procrastination; Self-Handicapping

    JOURNAL NAME: Psychology, Vol.3 No.1, January 17, 2012

    ABSTRACT: Previous procrastination research has provided considerable support for procrastination as a failure of self-regulation. However, procrastination has rarely been examined in relation to models of self-regulated learning. The purpose of this study was to understand the motives and reasons for academic procrastination from a self-regulated learning perspective. The current study employed a mixed-methods design in which participants completed several survey instruments of academic procrastination, self-regulation, and academic motivation and participated in semi-structured interviews. Findings indicated that academic procrastination was related to poor self-regulatory skills and defensive behaviors including self-handica- pping strategies. Only limited support for students’ demonstration of procrastination as an adaptive beha- vior (or, active procrastination) was also indicated. Limitations and implications for future research are discussed.
