Academic procrastination is measured with two dimensions, namely the prevalence of procrastination and reason for procrastination. The subjects of this research were 60 11th grade high school students in Sukoharjo. The research applied the academic procrastination scale as data collection method. The data were analyzed with Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) SmartPLS 3.2.8 using reflective construct by CFA 2nd Order. Based on the analysis, the dimensions and the indicators forming academic procrastination construct are valid and reliable. The dimension dominantly reflecting the academic procrastination construct is the reason for procrastination with 0.816 loading factor. The dimension least reflecting the academic procrastination construct is the prevalence of procrastination with 0.776 loading factor.
