    On a TV show, a kid is describing her brother in this way:

    "Lauri on kiva, rehellinen, mukava ja tekee paljon kouluhommia."

    Have I understood it correct, that "kouluhomma" means the same as homework?

    Does she imply, essentially, that her brother is diligent (ahkera?) in his homework?

    kouluhomma refers to any kind of schoolwork (homework or work done during class).

    Lauri ... tekee paljon kouluhommia = "Lauri does a lot of schoolwork". This probably does imply that he is diligent in doing his schoolwork.
