Chinese Schoolwork

Schoolwork[1] is work assigned by a teacher, school, or other educational institution. The term generally refers to both work completed at home (homework), as well as work completed during class (classwork). By a broad definition, schoolwork can be extended to refer to any academic activities at school. Typically, schoolwork is done in class, during the time period allotted by the instructor. However, it may be reassigned as homework, in which case it is done outside of the class.

Types of work[edit]

It is usually up to the teacher's discretion when assignments are to be completed, and often work that is not finished during class will be assigned as extra homework. Types of work include exams, tests, quizzes, and projects as well as normal work, such as worksheets, problem sets, or readings. The different types of work could be weighted differently based on a variety of reasons.


Grading of schoolwork can differ from teacher to teacher. Some teachers use the average, or arithmetic mean, while others use weighted averages. More information can be found at[2]

Vs coursework[edit]

Unlike school work, coursework generally refers to the more advanced work done in college. Coursework is assignments that are assigned by the professor and may require anything from reading to completing projects.
