Positive rewards are believed to motivate workers while negative ones serve to check unacceptable organisational behaviours. Motivation is essentially a drive towards meeting some needs or achieving desired goals. The wish to participate now and in future by tutors may be regarded as the desired goal. This goal may however be supported by some others. This study aims at identifying the types of rewards which tutors say motivate them. The data have been analysed on the basis of age, sex and length of experience in distance teaching. Inferences have been drawn as to how to actually use rewards of various types to motivate the tutor for improved or sustained good performance levels.
