The Effect of Weekly Math Homework on Fourth Grade Student Math Performance.
Swank, Anne Laney Greenwood
The purpose of this study was to provide teachers and principals with concrete evidence to demonstrate that weekly math homework increases academic performance in math. This study focused mainly on homework's effects on quiz scores. It compared quiz scores of students who did homework with those who did not. The subjects of this study included 21 9- and 10-year-old fourth graders. The researcher used an independent sample t-test to evaluate the weekly quiz scores of students who completed weekly math homework assignments and those who did not. Results showed no significant difference in academic success between students who complete weekly math homework and students who do not complete weekly math homework. (Contains 14 references.) (CCM)
