  • N M Abraham


The purpose of this study was to find out the rate of time utilization in self-study among the Post-Graduate Diploma in Education (PGDE) students of the National Teachers' Institute. A sample of forty (40) students drawn from a population of sixty (60) by simple random sampling technique was used for the study. Data collection was done using a self-developed questionnaire. The Time Utilization Rate (TUR) analysis was used to establish students' study time and the t-test utilization of students was as high as 66%, while the time utilization rate for tutorials was 85%. The study recommended that students should put in more time in self-study since that is mainly the mode of study in the Distance Learning System (DLS).
