For year-olds, the homework burden has not varied much.
Such skewing would not affect trends if it stayed about the same over time and in the same direction teachers assigning less homework than usual on the day before NAEP. Put another way, it would affect estimates of the amount of homework at any single point in time but not changes in the amount of homework between two points in time. A check for possible skewing is to compare the responses above with those to another homework question on the NAEP questionnaire from but no longer in use.
But the categories asking about no homework are comparable.
These figures are much less than the ones reported in Table above. For all three age groups, those figures declined from to The bottom line: regardless of how the question is posed, NAEP data do not support the view that the homework burden is growing, nor do they support the belief that the proportion of students with a lot of homework has increased in recent years.
The proportion of students with no homework is probably under-reported on the long-term trend NAEP. In , the survey started asking a series of questions regarding how students spent time in the final year of high school.
Figure shows the percentages for the dominant activities. More than half of college freshmen say they spent at least six hours per week socializing with friends Only Also not included are students who go into the military or attain full time employment immediately after high school.

In , In , as noted in Figure , the statistic had bounced off the historical lows to reach It is slowly rising but still sits sharply below where it was in Met Life has published an annual survey of teachers since In 19, the survey included questions focusing on homework and expanded to sample both parents and students on the topic.
Data are broken out for secondary and elementary parents and for students in grades and grades the latter not being an exact match with secondary parents because of K-8 schools.
Table shows estimates of homework from the survey. Respondents were asked to estimate the amount of homework on a typical school day Monday-Friday. The median estimate of each group of respondents is shaded.
As displayed in the first column, the median estimate for parents of an elementary student is that their child devotes about 30 minutes to homework on the typical weekday.
The Met Life surveys in 19 asked parents to evaluate the amount and quality of homework. There was little change over the two decades separating the two surveys. Parental dissatisfaction with homework comes in two forms: those who feel schools give too much homework and those who feel schools do not give enough. The current wave of journalism about unhappy parents is dominated by those who feel schools give too much homework. National surveys on homework are infrequent, but the period had more than one.
The data assembled above call into question whether that portrait is accurate for the typical American family. The homework burden of students rarely exceeds two hours a night. The Met Life survey of parents is able to give a few hints, mainly because of several questions that extend beyond homework to other aspects of schooling. The belief that homework is burdensome is more likely held by parents with a larger set of complaints and concerns.
