Abstract

This study focused on teacher responses during COVID-19 in the 2020-
2021 academic year about homework assignments, their preparedness,
internet use, resources used, measurement and evaluation methods. The
study is qualitative using content analysis and the N-Vivo program. Ten
teachers in different types of high schools in different socio-economic
regions in Adana/Turkey participated in this research. The results showed
that the opinions of the teachers did not vary according to school type and
socio-economic environment. They made creative efforts for effective
instruction by integrating different types of evaluation, homework, and
methodology. Based on the results, it is suggested that distance
educational planning should be made preparing teachers for such
unexpected events; it includes the development of software, alternative
teaching platforms, providing government support for internet and access
to equipment and technology. Additionally, it is noted that teachers may
experience a lack of motivation during the pandemic and should be
supported psychologically during such unexpected events.
