The Effect of Homework Assignments on the Mathematics Achievement of College Students in Freshman Algebra.
Cartledge, Carolyn M.; Sasser, John E.
This study investigated differences between the mathematics achievement of students receiving homework assignments and those not receiving homework. Thirty college students were divided into two equal groups. One group was given homework by the instructor, and the other group was not given any homework during the course. As predicted, the mathematics achievement of students receiving homework assignments was significantly greater at the .10 level than the mathematics achievement of students not receiving homework.
