Trends in Student Workload and Its Effect on Well-being

Using our unique data from learning management systems (LMSs), we took a detailed look at students’ workload in the 2021-22 academic year.


Trends in Student Workload: 3 Key Takeaways

Sacrificing Sleep for Homework Completion

23% of high school homework assignments were submitted between 10PM-8AM.

A Slow Start is Tough to Recover From

Most high schoolers who completed <50% of assignments in the first 2 months maintained that trend.

Tight Turnarounds Lead to Missing Work

Homework completion is highest when students are given at least one full day to turn in their work.
