The purpose of this study is to determine how implementing a homework correction plan effects student achievement in mathematics. There are numerous unique plans regarding homework that teachers use and often these varieties occur within the same school or district. Through my research, I found many recommendations for length of homework, the amount of time students should spend on homework, etc. , but none that focused on having students make corrections to their homework. I believe if students are made aware of their misconceptions and have the opportunity to correct them on their homework assignments, the learning will carry over to their performance on assessments as well as their overall performance in mathematics.
