Stress, Procrastination and Proactive Coping of Selected Foreign Psychology Students

Abstract

Students encountered challenges amidst this Covid-19 pandemic. These students managed to have a face-to-face class, but due to pandemic, they were migrated to a digital classroom. This research study emphasized on stress, procrastination, and proactive coping of selected foreign Psychology students (N=399). enrolled in one of the universities in South Metro Manila. Researchers employed the descriptive- comparative and correlational design in this study. This study predicted that there are no significant differences in the respondents’ stress, procrastination, and proactive coping in terms of gender and socioeconomic status. Similarly, it was hypothesized that stress is not significantly related and predictor of procrastination and proactive coping, and procrastination is not significantly associated and predictor of proactive coping of the selected international students. The results manifested male and female respondents did not significantly vary in their stress (t=.057, p>.05), procrastination (t= 1.713, p>.06), and proactive coping (t= -1.322, p>.05). In terms of socioeconomic status of below 5000 Rps, 6000-10000 Rps, 11000 - 15000 Rps, 16000 - 25000 Rps , and 26000 - 29000 Rps, it was found out that there are no significant differences in the stress (F= 1.288, p>.05, procrastination (F=.288, p>.05), and proactive coping (F=.141, p>.05) of the respondents. Nonetheless, stress of the respondents is found positively and significantly associated to their procrastination (r=151, p<.05); procrastination is negatively and significantly correlated to their proactive coping (r=-.512, p<.05); the stress of the respondents is not connected to their proactive coping (r=.087, p>.05). Using regression analysis, stress is significantly a predictor of procrastination but not of proactive coping, and procrastination predicted proactive coping of the respondents.
