Practice and Experience of Task Management of University Students: Case of University of Tsukuba, Japan
Fukuzawa, Ryoko; Joho, Hideo; Maeshiro, Tetsuya
Education for Information, v31 n3 p109-124 2015
This paper reports the results of a survey that investigated the practice and experience of task management of university students. A total of 202 tasks identified by 24 university students were analyzed. The results suggest that participants had a reasonable sense of priority of tasks, that they tend to perceive a task as a big chunk, not a series of small chunks, that estimated time can be a good indicator of task completion, that time management and loss of coordination are the major factors for uncompleted or non-started tasks, and finally that their notion of task grouping was dominated by task themes or topics.
