Abstract: 

Aims: As an important intervening factor to enhance educational and motivational performance of the students, understating the effective factors on behavioral enthusiasm plays a very important role. The aim of this study was to explain the role of motivational self-regulation and procrastination in predicting the students’ behavioral enthusiasm.
Instrument & Methods: In the correlational descriptive cross-sectional study, 311 students of Arak University of Medical Sciences were selected via Available Sampling using Cochran’s Formula in 2014-15 academic year. Data was collected, using Students’ Educational Procrastination Scale, Motivational Self-regulating Scale, and Behavioral Enthusiasm Scale. Data was analyzed in SPSS 19 software using Pearson Correlation Coefficient, and Multiple Regression Analysis.
Findings: The highest and the lowest correlations were between procrastination and behavioral enthusiasm and between environmental control and behavioral enthusiasm, respectively (p<0.05).
There was a positive and significant correlation between self-regulation and behavioral enthusiasm.
In addition, there was a negative and significant correlation between procrastination and behavioral enthusiasm (p<0.001). Totally, procrastination (
b=-0.233) and motivational self-regulation (b=0.238) explained 10% of the students’ behavioral enthusiasm variance (p<0.001; R2=0.102).
Conclusion: Any reduction in procrastination and any enhancement in motivational selfregulation can enhance the students’ behavioral enthusiasm.
