The Huron University College Journal of Learning and Motivation


This study aimed to explore the effect of locus of and task interest on an individual's procrastination behavior. Forty undergraduate university students were asked to complete a Rotter's Locus of Control Scale, a subject interest rating sheet, and a sheet containing a hypothetical situation about a university assignment and assignment start date. Participants were randomly assigned into either a high interest group or a low interest group and were sorted into locus of control groups based on the results of Rotter's Locus of Control Scale. Upon analysis no significant main effects were found.
