Resumo

This article describes the adaptation and factorization of the New Active Procrastination Scale (NAPS) and the Melbourne Decision Making Questionnaire (MDMQ. The study involved 515 students aged 18-42 years (M = 20.35 years, SD = 3.08), 79.4 % women. The factor structure was obtained by Exploratory Structural Equation Modelling (ESEM) and the weighted least squares mean- and variance-adjusted estimator (WLSMV). The results show that a four-factor structure is the optimal model in both cases. The factors obtained for the Active Procrastination Scale (APS) are: Satisfaction with results, Preference for pressure, Intentional decision, and Ability to meet deadlines. The factors obtained for the Decision Making Scale (DMS) are: Stress and dissatisfaction, Vigilance, Avoidance, and Deferral of task. The reliability coefficients of the scales are greater than .80. Both scales capture the hypothesized dimensions of the procrastination construct and have adequate psychometric properties that make them useful for the assessment of students’ procrastination profiles.
