Displays and causes of laziness and procrastination vary in both their essence and the influence they have on human activity. Students with different academic performance tend to display laziness and procrastination in different ways. The results of the research on procrastination and laziness patterns, shown by students with various academic performance rates, are described in the article. The levels and causes of laziness and procrastination for students with different academic performance were defined by means of diagnostic methodology. Based on the methods of Mathematical Statistics, such as the Spearman's rank correlation coefficient and the Mann–Whitney U test, the levels of procrastination and laziness were compared in correspondence with students’ academic performance rates. A negative correlation was discovered between the level of academic procrastination and students’ academic performance. Another correlation was established for such causes of laziness as “Capability deficiency” and “Lack of interest”. The differences in laziness levels as well as causes of laziness and procrastination were identified between students with high and low academic performance rates. A conclusion was made that in the process of forming the basic conditions for studying, it is highly important to recognize displays of procrastination and laziness among students with different academic performance rates.
