Homework is an extension of the learning process begun at school. It is a vital part of the curriculum. Its purpose is to promote independent study, provide extra practice, recognize individual differences, and develop a sense of personal responsibility. The length of homework assignments depends on the initiative and ability of the student and the type of assignment.
