Parent and Student views on homework in New Zealand

This is your chance to participate in New Zealand based research about your views on homework. The inserted PDF has a link at the bottom
that will take you to your own anonymous questionnaire. Information about the survey will then be collated and provided to our school.

From the researchers:
"The practice of homework has recently come under the international spotlight with conficting research studies showing both positive and negative
outcomes associated with it. For school principals and teachers, these fndings can be confusing. Added to this confusion is the lack of information
about teachers, students and parents views and experiences of the practice of homework. We are two experienced researchers at Massey University
with over 20 years experience in education both as classroom teachers and tertiary teachers. We would like to invite you to participate in a New
Zealand study investigating teachers parents and students views and experiences of homework.

Homework: What are YOUR Views?


Invitation to participate in NZ research on

teachers’, students’ and parents’ views and

experiences of HOMEWORK

Homework has a long tradition in New Zealand schools, however, very little is
known of teachers’, students’ and parents’ views and experiences of this practice.
Your school is participating in a research project examining teachers’ parents’
and students’ opinions and experiences of homework.

Parents and students (who are in years 5 and above) are invited
to participate in this research by completing a short online
anonymous questionnaire.

There is no obligation to complete this questionnaire, even though your school is
participating. Further information about the study, including your rights if
you do choose to participate can be found at this link:
