One strategy you may consider is to assign bonus points on tests for homework
problems.  You've already initiated the first step...students complete homework
in a composition book.  I assume you review the homework by going over it in
class, so all problems SHOULD be correct.  All you have to do is add a bonus
section to each of your assessments and this could be done on the chalkboard or
overhead.  The bonus question(s) would simply be to copy Problem # whatever from
their compostition book for a designated day's homework assignment.  If you
don't want students referring to their notebooks during the assessment, this
could be done separately after the test is turned in.

For example:  BONUS - Problem 6 from Tuesday's homework

If this is done on the overhead, you could easily change the assigned problem
for various classes.  This would avoid the "hallway warning" of "Hey, today's
bonus is #6 from Tuesday's homework."

Hope this helps.
