What does your personal mark mean?

19-24

You do your homework conscientiously and follow a sound study program. You are well organised. You read your homework assignments attentively and do not waste time by searching for books and other articles. As you plan your time for homework well, you should have enough time to relax and enjoy other activities. If you do not have enough free time, your homework probably takes up too much of your time. Discuss this with your parents or teacher and let them help you to adjust your homework program.

13-18

You follow the correct methods for completing your homework successfully most of the time, but definitely not all the time. You have to plan your homework time better. Choose better times for doing homework. In this way you will perform better at school and have more quality time for recreation.

Have a good look at those questions on which you have answered “sometimes”, and think about changing them to “often” in future.

0-12

You probably think homework is not important and make no effort to plan your program. You will have to work hard to change your habits. You will also have to see that your attitude towards schoolwork improves. Ask help and guidance from your parents or teacher.
