Student Homework

Teachers can prepare Homework in advance for up to the whole academic year. Each individual Homework assignment can be scheduled to be released on a specified date. School2016 will publish each Homework assignment on that date. Teachers appreciate this feature as they can schedule their work.

Teachers can also access previous Homework assignments and modify and reuse it. This reduces their workload.

Why is Homework Important

  • Homework sets children up to manage their time and plan study schedules, which are very useful skills for further education and eventually the workforce. Completing homework early in the schooling years ensures that it becomes a habit — not an inconvenience
  • Homework allows students to revise content learnt during the day with a fresh set of eyes and a clear head, away from their friends and other schoolyard distractions.
  • Homework also provides parents with an opportunity to get involved in their child’s school work, providing assistance and additional insight when needed
  • Homework makes students more responsible.

Problems with Homework

  • One of the most common arguments against homework is it eats up the valuable time kids have to spend with their family, attend extracurricular activities, play and catch up with friends. For older children, school work may also compete with part-time and casual work
  • Homework allows teachers to track each student’s progress. They can spot students struggling with content or falling behind the rest of the class. Submitting homework also provides a good lesson in responsibility and diligence. Schools will be have to plan special effort planned.
  • Homework is important and cannot be neglected for any reason. Resources must be planned and provided to ensure every students learns well


  • Homework set prior to a lesson can help students prepare and aid understanding later in class. Homework also provides opportunities for reinforcement of work learned during class and for students to develop their research and presentation skills. Students must also learn to seek information for themselves from reference materials such as encyclopedias, books, CD, DVDs and by doing so, are helped along the path to becoming independent learners
  • Having the responsibility of needing to meet deadlines promotes self-discipline, an attribute which will impact school work and beyond
