The Folly of Dillydally
Arthur Josef Caplan ()
Working Papers from Utah State University, Department of Economics
Using information from on-line graded assignments in an intermediate microeconomics course, we find that non-procrastinators (both earlystarters and front-loaders) obtain higher scores than their dillydallying counterparts. We also find that while busier students tend to start their assignments earlier, they nevertheless back-load the bulk of their effort.
