This study explores the relationships between intrinsic motivation, peer distraction, and off-task multitasking as well as the mediating role of self-efficacy and multitasking preference based on questionnaire data from 210 university students in China. The results show that learning self-efficacy fully mediates the association between intrinsic motivation and off-task multitasking. Multitasking preference partially mediates the association between peer distraction and off-task multitasking during class time.
