Five Hallmarks of Good Homework
Vatterott, Cathy
Educational Leadership, v68 n1 p10-15 Sep 2010
The best homework tasks exhibit five characteristics. First, the task has a clear academic purpose, such as practice, checking for understanding, or applying knowledge or skills. Second, the task efficiently demonstrates student learning. Third, the task promotes ownership by offering choices and being personally relevant. Fourth, the task instills a sense of competence--the student can successfully complete it without help. Last, the task is aesthetically pleasing--it appears enjoyable and interesting.
