Activity 4: Tracking Your Time UseGood time management involves identifying weaknesses in your time management, and trying out strategies to improve your regulation of time. Last week you were asked to track your activities and keep a detailed record of how you use your time ((in the calendar provided in the last lab or using a different method) and upload it to your Lab Activity Drop Box on the main moodle page Pull out your time tracker sheet and review how you spent your time last week. You must have tracked your time for at least 5 days in order to complete this activity (described next).
The Time Analysis Activity helps you to assess your own time management by asking you to complete 2 questionnaires and interpret the scores: Monitoring & Evaluating Time Use QuestionnaireAdaptive Procrastination QuestionnaireFirst complete the monitor and evaluate your time use questionnaire in WebQ. Think about the Time Tracking Portfolio Activity and what you found about your time use when you answer the questions,To log into WebQ: Username: first part of your email (before @)Password: edd10. View your responses to these by locating the questionnaire in your list in WebQ. And clicking “View Report”Remember that your scores are in red & that you can ignore the scores in blue. To interpret your scores, your WebQ report gives you 2 scores (EVEN and ODD)Calculate your Final Score by subtracting your EVEN Score from your ODD Score (ODD Score - EVEN Score = Final Score). Example: If your ODD Score is 40, and your EVEN Score is 20, your Final Score is 20 (40-20 = 20)Second find out what kind of procrastination if any you tend to do (in the Adaptive Procrastination Questionnaire). Use the scores on your questionnaires to answer the questions in the time analysis moodle activity.
