This classroom research project was an investigation into the efficacy of homework logs as a means to improve students' learning, study habits, and attitudes about homework. The study was conducted in an introductory chemistry course at St. Monica Academy high school with 20 students. Half the students maintained a homework log over the course of three units. Data collected from post exam assessments, student interviews, and surveys suggested that the logs improved students' focus, diligence and organization but did not significantly improve students' comprehension or understanding of the material.
