A Cross-Culture Study of Academic Procrastination and Using Effective Time Management
Duties, tasks, different situations or decisions need to be resolved on a daily basis. However, it often happens that because of over-information from different sides, an excessive number of tasks, the fast pace of life, and so on we tend to procrastinate important tasks for later. This phenomenon can occur in almost every area, including the academic area. This contribution, therefore, addresses the occurrence of academic procrastination and the establishment and use of time management by university students. The main objective is to identify possible differences in procrastination and the right use of time management in a cross-cultural context. A research sample consisted of 292 students from the Uzhhorod National University and from the University of Prešov, on which we surveyed the rate of procrastination and rate of time management through our own questionnaire. Subsequent testing of the obtained data revealed that there are statistically significant differences in procrastination between Ukrainian and Slovak students, but differences in time management have not been confirmed.
