The study investigates responsible homework completion and found that family involvement was related to two dimensions of self-responsible behavior: arranging an environment and monitoring and controlling emotion. No significant differences were found between grade levels on reports of self-responsible homework behavior. One hundred twenty-five students from a small, diverse, low-income middle school in New York City returned a questionnaire to determine the degree to which their families arranged homework environments, managed time, monitored attention, and monitored and controlled emotion. An additional nine students were interviewed. The researchers suggest that even middle school students need help developing self-responsible homework behaviors.
