The purpose of this study was to examine the attitudes and practices of elementary, middle, and high school teachers regarding homework. In addition, the study sought to find if there was a relationship between the teachers' attitudes and practices of homework, as well as finding the differences between the grade levels
The questionnaire used for this study consisted of 18 items focused on teachers' attitudes toward homework using a five-point Likert scale. In addition, six questions on the survey were asked regarding demographics, and there were eight questions pertaining to teacher homework practices. A Pearson Correlation was used to examine the relationship between attitudes and practices of each grade level, and a one way ANOVA was conducted to address the differences among the grade levels
The findings of the study revealed that there is a relationship between the teachers' attitudes and practices of homework in middle school and special education classes; however, there was no significant relationship between the two in elementary and high school grades
