Background: Motivation for progress is the desire or passion for success that is affected by many factors; time management, as an inevitable factor affects the academic achievement. This project was carried out with the aim of investigating the relationship between time management and academic achievement motivation among the students of Public Health School of Yazd University of Medical Sciences.
Methods: This cross-sectional and analytical study was conducted on 140 students of Yazd Shahid Sadoughi University of Medical Sciences in 2016 by stratified random sampling. To collect data, Truman and Hartley time management questionnaire (14 items) and Valerand's academic motivation scale (AMS) (28 items) were used. Reliability of the time management questionnaire was 0.72 using the Cronbach's alpha. The validity of this questionnaire was also confirmed by factor analysis. To assess the psychometric results of AMS, all qualitative-quantitative stages of formal validity, and content validity were performed. The reliability of the questionnaire was also verified by Cronbach's alpha (α = 0.88) and split-half (α = 0.73). Data were then analyzed using SPSS 18 and by running the descriptive statistics (percentage, mean, standard deviation), independent t-test, ANOVA, as well as Pearson and Spearman correlation coefficients.
Results: Based on the results, a positive and significant correlation was found between the 2 motivational and time management variables (r = 0.1) (p = 0.03). We observed no significant relationship of time management and motivation for progress with any the demographic variables of the students.
Conclusion: Considering the significant relationship between time management and the motivation for academic achievement, we recommend further investigations on the education of time management methods. The educational courses on time management should enhance the motivation for progress among students. They also can help students to improve their academic achievements.
