Toward an Understanding of Academic and Nonacademic Tasks Procrastinated by Students: The Use of Daily Logs.
Ferrari, Joseph R.; Scher, Steven J.
Psychology in the Schools, v37 n4 p359-66 Jul 2000
Examines procrastination by college students (30 women, 7 men) of academic and nonacademic tasks at beginning and end of semester. Analysis found that procrastinated tasks early in the term were more effortful and anxiety provoking than other tasks during the term. Results imply that academic and nonacademic tasks should be challenging, yet fun, to heighten the likelihood that they are completed. (Author/JDM)
