May be they are not concentrating while doing their homework. They have no interest in studies. Therefore , we should teach them in such a way that studies seems interesting and fun for them.

A lot of students just do their homework to get it over with and don't see it as an extended learning assignment to take seriously.

If the student routinely does their homework and succeeds at that, yet also routinely fails the tests, then it could be any number of things. Could it be test anxiety? Are his parents helping/doing his homework for him? Are the tests accurate measures of what was covered in the homework?
