The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the structural modeling of the relationship of academic procrastination with coping styles (task-oriented, emotion-oriented, and avoidance-oriented styles) and gender.
Multistage cluster random sampling was used to select 310 subjects from all departments of Mashhad University (Mashhad, Iran). The participants then responded to 2 valid and reliable questionnaires, i.e. Lay's academic procrastination scale and Endler and Parker's coping style inventory. After exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses of the tests, the data was analyzed by mean, standard deviation, t-test and structural equations. The results of structural modeling analysis revealed that the proposed model fitted with data significantly. Moreover, task-oriented coping style had a negative effect on academic procrastination. Furthermore, the results of t-test showed no significant difference between boys and girls as far as the level of academic procrastination was concerned.
