Lu Qian, Zhao Fuqiang

Abstract


In this study, we investigated the mediating effects of active procrastination and passive procrastination on the relationship between academic stress and academic performance. In addition, we proposed the moderating effect of academic self-efficacy on the relationship between academic stress and academic procrastination. According to the study, the influence of academic stress on academic performance is mediated by academic procrastination. When individuals perceive the academic stress, they will have better performance if they take active procrastinate while passive procrastination can produce poor performance. Moreover, when individuals have high self-efficacy, it will promote our active procrastination. That is to say, when the individual is aware of the academic stress, it is necessary to believe in their own ability and take active action, which will create good results.
