Completed. In the following paragraphs I will explain my assignment:
Homework is extra work assigned to be completed by the assignee at home. The term is generally used to refer to primary or secondary school assignments as opposed to college-level coursework.

Homework usually consists of small assignments, such as five open-ended reading comprehension questions (in the cases of History, English, and Science textbooks) or 30 arithmetic problems. Therefore, they usually are given a short time for completion, 1 to 5 work days. Depending on the case, larger take-home assignments are usually referred to as projects, essays, presentations, or genericized as "major assessments" or "major evaluations". Policy on how to treat students who don't hand in their assignments on time, or who are discovered handing in other student's work as their own, is usually left to the discretion of each teacher or the school.

In the United States, the amount of homework some students receive relative to others (for example, those taking higher-level classes) comes under frequent criticism by education experts.
Schoolwork 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).

Generally, schoolwork is very similar to homework. 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 homework.

By a broad definition, schoolwork can be extended to refer to any academic activities at school, and would therefore include exams, tests, and quizzes as well as the normal type of work.

Unlike schoolwork, coursework generally refers to the more advanced work done in college.
Busy work, also known as "Monkey Motion", is a critical term for schoolwork, coursework, or homework that keeps students occupied without teaching anything constructive or interesting. Examples might include sudoku or word searches featuring lists of specialized vocabulary words: while learning jargon or terminology may be important, the method of a word search or crossword puzzle is felt to be unlikely to help students appreciate and comprehend vocabulary words by many students and teachers alike.

Some critics have charged that busy work can cause problems for teachers: "When busy work becomes 'institutionalized,' among other teachers or the entire school, it creates such an overload of work for the slower students, that they have to 'buy out' of the system. They will always have more work than they can do because the work is assigned for control and not learning." [1]

People often have a negative attitude toward busy work, and some high school teachers have gone so far as to pledge to avoid the practice: "Homework is given to practice, review, preview, or simply provide more exposure to the topics covered in class—you will not be given homework for homework’s sake or as busy work."[
The term has also been used by employees who feel their assigned duties are useless or unproductive, and intended only to occupy their time. Busy work of one form or another often features in workplace humor, such as the comic strip Dilbert, or the movie Office Space (see TPS report (Office Space)).
