    To reduce stress among schools students, and to make homework more practical & fun, CBSE board has released an e-manual titled ‘Alternatives to Homework’. According to the CBSE, the board has conducted survey through questionnaire prepared by board itself to collect feedback from its various stakeholders i.e. parents, teachers, students and other educationists on "Alternatives to Homework at Upper Primary Level" for Classes VI-VIII so that appropriate strategies and meaningful activities can be designed and suggested to schools. The questions were directed to know the ideal length and purpose of the homework, whether homework should be assigned in all the subjects, internet usage should be a part of the homework or not, how homework helps in teaching and whether same homework should be given to all the students.

    All respondents unanimously agreed that Homework cannot be skipped as it is an essential part of learning. However, there is a need for a change in the type of homework set.
    All the respondents agreed that homework must be interactive, purposeful, creative, interesting, meaningful, properly planned, in tandem with the classroom work, helpful in enhancing the skills of students and according to the ability and interest of the learner.

    The board also stated that, that the homework must not be a burden or pressure for students and not just a mean to complete the syllabus.

    The board has suggested changing the term Home Work to Self Work or Practice Work.
