Exploring Homework Completion and Non-Completion in Post-Secondary Language Study
Gascoigne, Carolyn
Dimension, p83-93 2015
While homework is something that language professionals often assign, based on the paucity of research on the topic, it is clearly not something to which much attention is given in terms of professional discourse or research. In the following pages, the author reviews the limited available research and describes a case study that seeks to examine what students are doing, as well as not doing, in terms of written and online homework in beginning post-secondary foreign language courses. Results are examined through the lens of self-efficacy theory. Implications include allowing for student choice in homework options, particularly for those students with high levels of self-efficacy.
