Even though I may be a procrastinator, procrastinating is an effective tool. During school you get assigned a lot of assignments, some may be over fall break or even Christmas break.

Do their teacher’s leniency cause them to? Do students not have enough time? Do extra-curricular activities take up too much of their time? There has been many other research studies on this topic, but I wanted to see if the students in my survey and interviews had any different correlations.
Procrastination has often been lumped into one broad category, understood as the action of delaying to initiate or complete a task, often done through means of finding distractions or by displaying other avoidant characteristics.
