Even in an increasingly cyber-driven world, many classrooms are still heavily reliant upon paper and pencil assignments. More and more students are provided with computer access at school as well as at home, which presents educators with a tool that can minimize the use of paper within their classrooms and decrease the amount of energy and resources schools are using in their classroom on a daily basis. The purpose of this study is to determine whether online homework creates a measurable difference in student performance when compared to traditional, paper homework. Results showing increased student performance when utilizing paper homework may give support to explaining why most teachers still utilize this method. In contrast, if the use of online homework increases or maintains student performance, it may justify a push toward a more online-based extension of student learning. Overall, the results for this study seem to indicate that online homework, at the very least, maintains student performance within the classroom, although a greater study sample may be necessary to confirm this position.
