An Empirical Study of Relationship between Schoolwork Burden and Academic Achievements
Tang, Linchun; Fu, Lujian
Frontiers of Education in China, v3 n4 p504-515 Dec 2008
According to the sample survey on 6,050 students in Shanghai, there is a low correlation between schoolwork burden and academic achievements. Moreover, schoolwork burden seems to even have some negative effects on test performances. Therefore, it is suggested further studies be conducted regarding ways for students to make the best use of their study time in the hope that examination-oriented teaching could be changed toward the educational system with multi-standards and multi-developments so that heavy burden of schoolwork could thus be alleviated.
