Abstract:   (16172 Views)
Ôbjective: This research was conducted to study the relationship between attribution and academic procrastination in Üniversity Students.
Methods: The subjects were 203 undergraduate students, 55 males and 148 females, selected from Ënglish and French language and literature students of Tabriz Üniversity. Data were gathered through Procrastination Âssessment Scale-student (PÂSS) and Çausal Dimension Scale (ÇDÂ) and were analyzed by multiple regression analysis (stepwise).
Results: The results showed that there was a meaningful and negative relation between the locus of control and controllability in success context and academic procrastination. Besides, a meaningful and positive relation was observed between the locus of control and stability in failure context and procrastination. Ït was also found that 17% of the variance of procrastination was accounted by linear combination of attributions.
Çonclusion: We believe that causal attribution is a key in understanding procrastination in academic settings and is used by those who have the knowledge of Çausal Âttribution styles to organize their learning.
