Evaluation of the impact of online homework on the students' understanding of Physics concepts

The effect of online homework (OHW), as compared with ungraded homework (UHW), on the students' understanding on Physics concepts at the undergraduate level has been studied using the standard Physics Concept Test. Our results suggest that OHW significantly increased the students' understandiing of physics concepts as evidenced by the significantly higher gain in the test scores of the OHW group than the UHW group.
