EEF TOOLKIT HOMEWORK

The quality of the task set appears to be more important than the quantity of work required from the pupil. Certainly, knowing the evidence base can help our decision-making, though it is of course a little more complicated than that. Teachers, parents and students themselves all have a view on the matter and those views are often diametrically opposed. We should expect that every teacher and school leader understands the nuanced evidence that attends homework, with the differences that relate to individuals, groups and students of very different ages and stages of development. High impact for very low cost, based on moderate evidence.

Benefits are likely to be more modest, up to two to three months’ progress on average, if homework is more routinely set e. Complex, open ended homework is often completed least effectively; whereas, short, frequent homework, closely monitored by teachers is more likely to have more impact. Overall costs are estimated as very low. What are the costs? Setting or streaming Negative impact for very low cost, based on limited evidence.

The next stages will involve an evaluation of how a number of schools fare in actually implementing the toolkit, and the development of the toolkit into a more interactive online resource for schools and teachers.

The broader evidence suggests that homework should not be used as a punishment or penalty for poor performance.
