Abstract

In my Masters Graduate Thesis, I investigated if there was a relationship between a sixth grader's perception of homework and his/her academic achievement level. Six students at seven local Monroe County schools were interviewed and asked questions regarding their perceptions on homework.

I then compared the data within each academic achievement level grouping, to see if all students felt the same way or if their academic achievement level truly did influence their perception of homework.

The data was analyzed qualitatively. The results demonstrated that although there were some interesting findings among these students, there was no relationship found between a sixth grader's perception of homework and his/her academic achievement level.
