The project “Homework – the exception rather than the rule” is being conducted in Elementary school “Vijenac” in the wake of contemporary European and global solutions in order to question the appropriateness of homework and to improve the teaching process. A study was conducted in which the students, parents and teachers of Elementary school “Vijenac” were interviewed. Accordingly, the aims of the research were the following: to examine the students', teachers’ and parents’ opinions about the project “Homework – the exception rather than the rule”, to examine the opinions about changes in the teaching process, to check the impact of the project on students’ independence and activities, and to check the impact of freedom of choice on self-assessment. The conducted research has shown that the students recognized the value of the project in relation to the performance of the teaching process (emphasized learning outcomes, freedom to choose the tasks, clear instructions about preparation for the next lesson), their activity (more work during the lesson and in the learning process) and self-evaluation. This study indicated that the teachers, as key subjects of the teaching process, accept personal responsibility for students’ success through consistent implementation of the agreed conclusions of the Teachers Council. The results of the parents’ responses reflect their (still) traditional view of the teaching and learning process and lack of trust in the ability of students for self-evaluation.
This paper presents the results, which confirm that the objectives and purposes of the project have been attained.
