Time-use attitudes (TUA) of students contributes to our understanding of classroom behavior, but has received limited attention from investigators. This study empirically examined the major constructs or dimensions identified by other researchers (Baruch, Bruno, & Horn, 1987) of students' attitudes toward time use. Attention also was given to another dimension of TUA which has not previously been empirically explored, and to an analysis of differential developmental patterns of high school students. Three constructs of TUA were identified: passive fatalistic, egoistic, and conscientious. Several significant developmental patterns of TUA were found for males and females in Grades 8, 10, and 12.
