School Engagement Questionnaire

The NCSE School Engagement Questionnaire was compiled in 2006 based on extensive research into the school engagement literature and a thorough review of existing school engagement measures. We designed the survey to measure three aspects of school engagement:

  • cognitive engagement,
  • behavioral engagement,
  • and emotional engagement.

The resulting 42-question survey was rigorously tested for validity and reliability, and the fifteen items that had the highest predictive value – five for each engagement type – were selected for a short survey version. In addition, a section of questions on bullying was added. Since then, the survey has been used in many schools across the country.

Everything you need to conduct a successful survey is included in the $75 packet.
