The aspect of whether homework is beneficial to student learning was investigated by comparing the efficiency of students completing homework verses class work. This study was conducted in a high school geometry class and it included 22 students, 4 male students and 18 female students. Using the grades on three separate tests as a performance indicator, the hypothesis of weather homework had a positive effect on student achievement was tested. Student perception of whether homework was beneficial was also examined. The results of this study indicated that homework did have a significant effect on student achievement.
