In 1998 the department for Education and Employment published guidance for schools regarding homework policy and practice. This thorough and wide-ranging review focuses on the best available evidence from recent research in an attempt to answer some fundamental questions about homework. It considers research into time on homework and achievement; homework and pupil attitudes; parental involvement and influence; and key aspects of the homework environment.
