Even when researchers concede that there is little evidence for homework’s contribution to academic achievement, they argue that it can help to develop discipline and character. This helps to.

Professor Susan Hallam, Institute of Education, University of London Introduction Homework has a long and controversial history (Gordon, 1980). Since the mid-nineteenth century it has been used to supplement the curriculum and has been more or less fashionable depending on political, economic, social and educational factors. When there is concern to raise educational standards the amount of.
Educational achievement is strongly influenced by the attitudes of children towards learning, and these attitudes start developing from an early age. Qualitative research talking to children from different backgrounds about their attitudes and experiences suggests important differences in this respect between children from different social groups. One study, from Northern Ireland (Horgan 2007.
For high school graduates, we explore the effects of time spent on homework on two measures of academic achievement: high school GPA and college attendance by age 20. We find that homework time increases the probability of college attendance for boys.
Homework, or a homework assignment, is a set of tasks assigned to students by their teachers to be completed outside the class.Common homework assignments may include required reading, a writing or typing project, mathematical exercises to be completed, information to be reviewed before a test, or other skills to be practiced. The effect of homework is debated.

What is certain is that great schools make a significant difference in turning poor children’s education around. “The problem of poor, white British under attainment is real and the gap.
The student achievement variable (on the right of Figure 4) was derived from scores from short standardized tests of reading, math, science, and social studies (history, citizenship, and geography), developed for NELS by Educational Testing Service (ETS).The largest predictor of student achievement is, not surprisingly, students’ previous achievement.
Homework has a positive effect on achievement, but the effect varies dramatically with grade level. For high school students, homework has substantial positive effects. Junior high school students also benefit from homework, but only about half as much.
