|Background, Aims and Framework|
|Homework motivation in chemistry education
|Methods and Analysis|
First, a variety of homework assignments are created varying in context, treatment of experiment, and level of task demands. The resulting assignments are rated by students with respect to motivation. Next, an intervention study is conducted, wherein the assignments rated positively are given an ntervention group while a control group is given negatively rated homework.
In both phases, students are asked to fill in questionnaires on homework to compare homework assignments in chemistry education to homework assigned in English, mathematics and physics.
o Questionnaire on homework motivation
o Questionnaire on homework effort
o Questionnaire on homework quality
o Questionnaire on parental help
o Cognitive ability test (KFT)
o Achievement test
o Questionnaire on cognitive load
