The atricle did not present anything new about the causes of and possible solutions to the problem of procrastination. It was however, refreshing in that it forced a look at a very common problem facing a large portion studnets at any educational level. The subject of procastination might not seem as important as other problems facing education today, but combating it is important in teaching studnets to be more reposnible eiht thier time and could even help reduce the amount of stress induced sicknesses. The article can be useful to any person, student or otherwise, atempting to become more task oriented.

Technical Remarks:

There were no problems encountered while accessing the website.

I am a college student as well and also found this site to be helpful. I spent around 15 minutes reading the introduction and browsing the links. When reading the introduction, I agreed with many of the statements as I am an academic procrastinator. I also clicked on the link "Abby's summary of Intervention Strategies for Procrastination" and then from there on the link for “Academic Procrastination.” I found this site very interesting as well. I agreed with many of the statements on why students procrastinate. If students learn about ways to avoid procrastinate a young age, when they get to be college students they might not procrastinate as much. I think this quality of content is very truthful, and therefore helpful. I also think this can be very effective if used in the classroom appropriately. This material was very easy to find, even for first time users.

I soent about 15 min. going over the article. and I found a lot of similarities
with my actions as a college student and with the examples given in the article
after reading the article i garee that much of the procrastination is brought on
by anxiety and stress. i feel this way because generally it is harder to start
a procject or paper thani ti is to finnish after you have started.

Technical Remarks:

I felt the article was professionally done and brought up many good reasons why
students at differing levels procrastinate.

I am a college student who spent about ten minutes reading the introduction and
looking over the information provided. This is a specifically good site for
college students who have trouble with procrastinating on projects and papers.
It also has good information for a teacher with students that are having trouble
getting their homework done and they make comments like, "I didn't have enough
time," or "It was harder than I expected it to be." There are ideas and
resources given to help combat procrastination. I think that if someone tried
really hard to follow their advice that learning could be enhanced, whether it
be self-learning for a college student, or being taught strategies from a

Technical Remarks:

I do believe that anyone can easily manuever around this site and understand the
information. I like how they have the title of all their pages on the side,
that way you don't have to hit back several times to get where you want to go.

This is a good website about procrastination. I found that it had a lot of
useful links about procrastination and tips to help avoid procrastination in the
future. The content of this webpage is good although I don't know how useful it
would be for a psychology class to enhance teaching or learning because it's
not a topic often discussed in class.

Technical Remarks:

This webpage was easily to navigate even if a first time user is exploring it.
