Promptness and Academic Performance

Marco Novarese () and Viviana Di Giovinazzo ()

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: This article uses university administration data to investigate the relation between student behavior (rapid response in finalizing enrolment procedures) and academic performance. It shows how student promptness in enrolling, or lack of it, can prove a useful forecast of academic success. Several explanations can be given, including simply the greater or lesser tendency to procrastinate.
