The Relation between Pop-Quizzes & Homework Performance.
Loewer, Wesley B.
It is often difficult to motivate high school students to do their homework on a regular basis. This research project sought to determine the effectiveness of one possible stimulus in this area. The purpose of this research project was to measure the relationship (if any) between administering "pop-quizzes" to students and students' homework performances. Through the use of control and test groups, measurements were made in such a way as to reduce the effect of many extraneous variables. The particular questions that were being examined were: (1) "What is the correlation between administering pop-quizzes and students' homework averages?" and (2) "What is the correlation between administering pop-quizzes and the frequency at which students attempt their homework?" The results of these measurements indicate that there was essentially no correlation between administering pop-quizzes and the frequency of attempting homework. There was a small, but not statistically significant, correlation between the administration of pop-quizzes and homework averages. (Author)
