Procrastination –the gap between intention and action. Students in higher education. (English)
The definition of procrastination can be described as a behavior with deliberate postponement of tasks or commitments despite expected negative consequences for the individual and his or her environment. This study examined how widespread this behavior is among students in higher education in Sweden. Using a web-based survey, data was collected for analysis. A statistical program, SPSS, was used for evaluation of the collected data. The purpose of this study was to examine whether there are differences in the degree of procrastination between students located on campus versus students who do their education at distance. The purpose was also to find out what factors influence the degree of procrastination. The results of this study show that there are differences in the degree of procrastination between distance students and campus students. Students on campus tend to procrastinate more than distance students and one explanation is the students' perceived degree of self-efficacy. Self-efficacy is a proven link with the procrastination phenomenon and this study reveals a number of factors that influence self-efficacy and thus the behavior of procrastination.
