Dr. Robert T. McGrath


Until rather recent years home study or home work has been an integral part of the school program. Simultaneous with the increase in the complexities of our modern social life, the school curriculum of today has been undergoing a gradual change. Such outstanding social occurrences of modern times as industrialization, urbanization of our people, and newer methods in transportation and communication have been greatly accountable for the transfer of so many of the early responsibilities of the home to the school. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of homework on seventh and eighth grade achievement in arithmetic; to give a quantitative expression as to the nature and extent of the variations in achievement existing in grades s even and eight of St. Joseph's Parochial School, Hays, Kansas.
