Title: Individual Differences and Academic Behavior
Author: Morford, Zachary H.
Abstract: SUMMARY This study investigates the relationship between procrastination and goal-setting behaviors. Undergraduate students (20 male, 24 female) completed a measure of the Five-Factor Model of personality (Mini-Markers) a test of procrastination (PASS), the Achievement Goal Questionnaire, a goal commitment questionnaire for a specific goal and a goal commitment questionnaire for a non-specific goal. In addition, a measure was created for this study that measures how many incidents of being late the students have had this semester. Also, the students completed three situational questions measuring academic procrastination tendencies.
