Here’s an interesting international comparison article looking at homework. One interesting thing is to compare this list with the international rankings for things like PISA and TIMMS. The correlation is a very weak one.
What the article fails to get in to is the issue of the quality of tasks being set as homework. This is critical in any meaningful comparison. If the work set is busy work, mindless mugging up or projects that fail to engage the student then it doesn’t matter what the quantity is – the learning outcomes will be poor.
