Time Management Quiz
1. It is common in college to feel like there are Not Enough Hours in the Day to fulfill all obligations! Which of the following are strategies for making the most of the hours you have? (Check all that apply)
A. Schedule extra time for important/challenging tasks
B. Organize your schedule for the week on Sunday
C. Avoid distractions (social media; internet; streaming shows) while studying
D. Find a study buddy and hold each other accountable
Correct answer is "A, B, C, and D." Many college students have very busy schedules with the added pressure of being academically successful, so being able to manage your time is essential! To lower stress and perform at your academic best, find time management strategies that work for you and stick with them!
2. UF students reported that the biggest barrier to managing time well is procrastination.
Correct answer is "True." Make time to manage time and prioritize your tasks. Set aside consistent time in your schedule to organize how you will use your time. For example, preplan by organizing your schedule for the week each Sunday. Then, organize your time according to your priorities. Higher priority tasks should come first. Also, try scheduling extra time for these important tasks.
3. Which of the following actions assist students with time management? (check all that apply)
A. Keep track of deadlines using Google calendar or similar apps
B. Do not cram just schedule out study time
C. Prioritize tasks based on due dates
D. Minimize distractions.
Correct answer is "A, B, C, and D." There are a wide variety of tools that can help with time management including planners, online calendars, or phone apps. Pick whatever works for you and your organization style. Try preplanning by organizing your schedule for the day the night before, or for the week. Identify what your common distractors (phone, TV, social media). Then, come up with a plan to minimize these where possible (silence your phone, turn off TV/Computer/Wi-fi).
4. Although it is important to be involved in extracurricular activities that support personal and professional growth, growing your network and meeting new people, students should take care not to take on too many responsibilities outside of academics. How can students avoid taking on too much at one time? (check all that apply)
A. Before you say “Yes” to something new ask yourself if it realistically fits in with your priorities/time
B. If you feel overwhelmed just evaluate what you are doing and see what activities you can say “No” to.
C. Say YES to everything…YOLO…you can always retake that Stats class
D. If you take on something new; think about cutting out (or cutting back on) something else in your schedule.
Correct answer is "A, B, and D." There are SO MANY opportunities to get involved on campus outside the classroom: student/professional organizations, intermural sports, volunteering, and more! While these are important for personal and professional growth, academics come first. Be careful not to over-commit to extracurricular activities. When you cram too much into your schedule, you run the risk of doing lots of thing… not very well. Less is more. Choose wisely.
5. One’s study environment can have an impact on productivity. Which of the following are good ways to improve productivity when studying? (check all that apply)
A. Explore the quiet floors of the UF libraries
B. Use headphones or ear buds to block out excess noise
C. Find a study buddy (who isn’t distracting) and hold each other accountable
D. Take a 5-15 minute break for every 45 minutes you study
