Time Spent on Homework, Mathematics Anxiety and Mathematics Achievement: Evidence from a US Sample
Cheema, Jehanzeb R.; Sheridan, Kimberly
Issues in Educational Research, v25 n3 p246-259 2015
This study investigated the effect of time spent on homework and mathematics anxiety on mathematics achievement. Data from a nationally representative US sample consisting of 4,978 cases was used to predict mathematics achievement from time spent on homework and mathematics anxiety while controlling for demographic differences such as gender, grade, race, and socioeconomic status. Multiple regression results showed that both maths anxiety and time spent on homework had a significant effect on maths achievement. The implications are discussed.
