Balli, Sandra J.; Wedman, John F.; Demo, David H.
Journal of Experimental Education, v66 n1 p31-48 Fall 1997
The effects of promoting families to be involved in the homework of their middle-grades children, and the effect of involvement on student achievement in mathematics were studied with families of 74 white sixth graders. Prompted families were significantly more involved in homework. Level of family involvement was not significantly related to mathematics achievement, although parental educational attainment was.
