Abstract

This study assessed time management on the academic performance of home economics students in University of Ilorin. Five (5) research questions were raised and four (4) hypotheses were formulated and tested at 0.05 level of significance. The total population was (146) students from 300 and 400 levels department of home economics. A well-structured questionnaire developed by the researcher was used to elicit information from the respondents. The findings revealed that there were variations in the time allocated for activities by students and it is different based on gender. The results also revealed that majority of the respondents agreed that socioeconomic status affect academic performance and certain constraints like poor resource management and procrastination affect the academic performance of the students. Hypothesis one shows a significant difference between male and female student’s time management and their academic performance (F-value of 4.310 and p-value of 0.015). Time management will significantly influence academic performance of undergraduate students (r = 0.222; p-value = 0.005). There was a significant difference between time management and academic performance of students based on their economic status (F = 8.259, p = 0.000). On the other hand, there was no significant relationship between economic status and academic performance of students (r = 0.062; p = 0 .435). It can be concluded that students make adequate and effective use of their allotted time for their activities and their academic performance greatly depend on their management skills. It is therefore recommended that male student improve on activity managing skills. Student should be prepared at all time for impromptu circumstance and should be able to multi-task as this enhances good time management.
