Ibrahim A. Alhusaynan

Abstract


The purpose of this study is to investigate the relationship between the two types of academic procrastination (passive and active) and self- regulated learning. Data was collected from 135 students of Educational Psychology class at the College of Education in Majmaah University. For the purpose of data collection, the researcher used the Short Form of the Academic Procrastination Scale, the Active Procrastination Scale, and The Self- Regulated Learning Strategies Scale. The findings indicated that most self-regulated learning strategies were negatively related to passive procrastination, and that most self-regulated learning strategies were not related to active  procrastination. Moreover, some self-regulated learning strategies can predict  passive procrastination, but not the active one.


Keywords
