Welcome to Lab 6! Are you a procrastinator? Do you find yourself constantly running out of time when it comes to getting work done? Most university students are familiar with time management problems. In lab we will discuss how the SRL cycle is critical for procrastination. Lab activities will give you the chance to analyze your strengths and weaknesses in your time management including your tendencies for procrastination.
Just a reminder that Test 1 is next week in lab. That means the lab will not be online. It will be in person on campus In Room MAC D211 On Wednesday From 6:00pm to 7:20pm. You have to be there to write the test. Remind students in lab that they have their term test next week in lab. The term test will be 45 multiple choice questions, covering topics from the first four lectures and the readings assigned to those lectures. The questions will assess students' understanding of the concepts and ability to connect and extend/apply concepts. The preparation and completion of Collaborative Challenge 1 will have helped to prepare them for the term test but they need to know all the material - not just their expertise topic. The test will take place in lab time in Moodle.

Activity 4: Tracking Your Time Use Good 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 Lab 5 or using a different method) and upload it to your Lab Activity Drop Box on the main moodle page You will have needed to track your time for a minimum of 5 days before doing today’s time analysis activities desribed next If you haven’t uploaded last week’s time tracker, you won’t get marks for this week’s analysis which means you run the risk of getting 0 in both labs for not completing the activities. This activity is due next Tuesday. You still have time to both track your time and complete the analysis before then. Part of the time analysis activity includes aswering some questionnaires in Moodle. Just a reminder:
First 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, Second find out what kind of procrastination if any you tend to do (in the Adaptive Procrastination Questionnaire). Odd: 60 and Your EVEN was 20: Calculate your score by taking the &quot;ODD&quot; number and subtracting the &quot;EVEN&quot; number beside &quot;your score&quot; ( ignore &quot;overall&quot; score )., your final score reported int eh time analysis activity would be 40. View your responses to these by locating the questionnaire in your list in WebQ. And clicking “View Report” Part of the time analysis activity includes aswering some questionnaires in Moodle.
