Engagement

Are students in this school engaged in their learning?

Student engagement is defined in The Glossary of Education Reform as the degree of attention, curiosity, interest, optimism, and passion that students show when they are learning or being taught. Research indicates that students who are engaged find more value in the learning experience and exhibit greater persistence, and report higher levels of achievement. To measure student engagement, Idaho students participate in an annual survey with 20 questions exploring their perceptions about school and learning. Their responses provide evidence about student engagement across the behavioral, emotional, and cognitive domains.
