|Four individual-difference measures of task delay, moderately associated with procrastination self-reports, were derived from information on planning and timing of real-life academic tasks. The same mathematical function yielded measures with highly similar properties across different student samples. Averaging across multiple tasks may result in sufficiently reliable individual-difference measures.
