How does self-regulated learning relate to active procrastination and other learning behaviors?
This research investigates the relationship between self-regulated learning awareness, procrastination, and learning behaviors in a blended learning environment. Participants included 179 first-grade university students attending a blended learning-style class that used a learning management system. Data were collected using questionnaires on participants’ self-regulated learning awareness, academic behavior awareness for procrastination, and a datalog on the timeliness of their report submissions to quantify learning behaviors. Participants answered both pre- and post-class questionnaires. As regards learning behaviors, report and 1-min paper submission time values were collected using the learning management system. The results revealed that internal value, self-regulation, and procrastination are fundamental elements that enhance the awareness of time management for planned learning. Positive time management awareness promotes the submission of the 1-min paper report within the deadline and of the regular report early.
