Abstract

The purpose of this study is to analyze the link between the academic procrastination of university students and school burn out, learning styles and gender. 241 students who are studying in high school attended to the survey. In the survey Secondary School Burnout Scale (SSBS) which was developed by Aypay (2012), Academic Procrastination which was developed by Cakici (2013) and Grasha-Reichmann Learning Style Scale which was adapted by Kocak (2007) were applied in order to gather data. It is suggested that there is a positive relation between the inactive style and the tendency of academic procrastination within the sub dimensions of school burn-out. In addition it is considered that there are negative relations between academic procrastination and independent style, dependent style, competitive style, participant style. However in the multiple regression analysis it is witnessed that inactive style, independent style, participant style, course burn-out and burnout caused by the family predict the tendency of academic procrastination significantly. Results were discussed by educationalists and counselors according to the findings. (C) 2013 The Authors. Published by Elsevier Ltd.
