The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of anxiety and academic motivation on the time management of college students. A sample of 101 participants that comprising of male and female college students both full-time and part-time completed a self-report questionnaire. Students responded to measures including the Time Management Questionnaire, Motivated Strategies of Learning Questionnaire and the Anxiety subscale of the DASS-21. There was a significant positive correlation found between time management and academic motivation. Age of the participants was also seen to have a positive correlation with time management. No correlation was found between levels of anxiety and time management or between gender and time management.
