The Effects of Vocabulary Homework on Third Grade Achievement.
A study determined if homework influences the acquisition of vocabulary knowledge and understanding. Subjects, 40 third graders, were divided into two groups--20 students received homework in vocabulary and 20 students did not. A test was administered to determine if homework had an effect on their understanding of the vocabulary. Results indicated that students who received homework had a better understanding of the vocabulary that was taught. A questionnaire was also given to teachers to assess their feelings about the worthiness of homework. Most of the teachers surveyed felt that homework increases vocabulary understanding. (Contains 20 references and 1 table of data. Vocabulary words, a vocabulary test, data, a letter to teachers, and the questionnaire are attached.) (RS)
