I believe students should not have homework it is a time waster they should have quiz to see what students need to work on and really at that time were ready to go have fun and are sick of school so we want free time and we really don't pay the most attention and some may just rush through it ps I don't do that mr.meyers

Quizzes are only one measure of a student's knowledge. Some students would feel such anxiety by a test that they could in fact perform poorly despite knowing a great deal of the subject matter. How many times after a quiz or after missing a question on homework do you in fact realize you knew how or what the answer really was...you just made a mistake? So is a quiz a true measure of ability?

Secondly, part of growing up as a human being is learning to manage the pain/pleasure part of your brain. Learning to simple chase your desires (such as free time or fun) will actually make life harder for you as an adult. In order to be successful you need a degree of self-discipline that is practiced daily. So a limited amount of daily work helps you keep to that habit of forming and maintaining your self-discipline...just as regular exercise can keep your body fit, so does regular homework keep your mind fit.

Homework can at times be a time waster...especially if it's repetitive material, yet studies show that streamlined homework that highlights skills currently being acquired or skills that need re-learning is most effective for a student's growth.
