The purpose of this study is to determine the impact of homework practices (worksheets/paper & pen) on students’ poor homework habits in standard level Chemistry classes. The measurement tool was the students’ homework completion rates. The study involved a quasi-experimental design in which a control group received traditional homework assignments and the experimental group received the online homework assignments. The study spanned two units from the Baltimore County Public Schools (BCPS) Honors/Standard Chemistry Curriculum and lasted approximately seven weeks. The null hypothesis was supported. The results show that online homework practices did not lead to an increase in homework completion rates. Future research is recommended examining the impact technology-infused homework practices has on homework completion and performance among high school students.
