Abstract

Giving learners' homework to do after school carries several benefits, including extending opportunities to learn, refreshing learners' knowledge and skills, and supporting their progress through the subject content. It also allows educators to evaluate whether their instruction methods were effective and can assist learners to develop independent learning, time-management skills, and perseverance.
