Assigning homework to primary age students can establish better study habits and skills for secondary education (Bempechat, 2004).
Homework promotes a positive attitude towards school and keeps families informed about their child’s learning. It can lead to boredom if the student has already mastered the skills, and it can lead to loss of interest in school due to burnout.
Cooper, Robinson, and Patall (2006) discovered a positive correlation between the amount of the homework students do and their achievement at the secondary level.

Examples include practicing multiplication facts or writing simple sentences in order to commit theses skills and concepts to long-term memory.

Cheating is involved with homework by either copying another student’s work or when help is received from adults in an attempt to finish all the assignments.
