Abstract

In response to the call for educational reform, educators are beginning to review their programs and implement new instructional strategies such as homework programs to enhance the academic performance of students. Naturally, reliable and valid assessment instruments will be needed to identify students experiencing homework difficulties. The purpose of this study was to determine the inter-rater reliability and internal consistency of the Homework Problem Checklist (HPC) (Anesko, Schoiock, Ramirez, and Levine. 1987) for use with students with behavior disorders (BD). Fifty-one pairs of teachers and parents of students with BD completed the rating scale describing students' homework problems. The HPC demonstrated low to moderate levels of inter-rater reliability. Acceptable levels of internal consistency were reported for both teacher and parent ratings.
