Abstract:The phenomenon of the Quantified Self has become a widespread movement which is increasingly supported by technology. However, the Quantified Self is lacking in the area of truly revealing the story behind one’s data. The Qualified Self, on the other hand, targets the subjective meaning behind one’s data. It aims to provide the individual with better understanding into why their data is the way it is. Academic procrastination is a universal problem and has various negative consequences. Many factors related to academic procrastination can be measured through self-tracking data. This graduation project aims to give students more insight in their academic procrastination behavior by having them reflect on the Quantified Self using self-tracking data, resulting in the Qualified Self. A concept was created where data was collected of one’s academic procrastination, emotional regulation, and present-self connection. Additionally, journaling was used as a tool to support the student to engage in self-reflection. It appeared that the concept has potential to give students insight in their academic procrastination behavior and possibly reduce it. In conclusion, the concept could lead students to a more Qualified Self, however, due to a narrow set of factors the insight that was provided is fairly limited.
