Students given two attempts on homeworks spend less time and obtain a lower score on the first attempt relative to the total time and score by students given only one attempt in total.
The key variables of interest for examining our first two hypotheses are the average homework scores, average total time spent on homeworks and average exam scores for the two and one attempt sections.
One and two-tailed statistical tests of differences in means between the two and one homework attempt sections for homework scores and time spent on homeworks are shown in Table 1.
However, the null hypothesis of a right-tailed test that the difference in mean total time spent on homeworks between the two and one attempt section exceeds zero is rejected at the 10% significance level for only three assignments.
It is important to note that the total time spent on homeworks for the two attempts section have not been adjusted for two likely phenomena.
With total time spent on homeworks unchanged, exam performance is left unchanged, ceteris paribus.
Of course, doing this also negatively impacts the overall incentive to expend energy on homeworks, irrespective of the attempt settings.
Historically, conventional wisdom has suggested that providing incentives, such as grades and the ability to rework homework problems, will lead to more time spent on homework, higher homework grades, and better exam performance--see Keith (1982), Emerson and Mencken (2011) and Grove and Wasserman (2006), respectively.
In Round I, financing by private lenders accounted for more than 70% of funding for HomeWorks projects and more than 50% of funding for StoreWorks projects, with HPD funding and Developer Equity covering the remaining costs.
HomeWorks and StoreWorks are two of a number of programs designed to prevent the problem of abandonment by identifying and attracting potential owners who have a desire to live in and invest in a revitalized neighborhood.
