NCSE School Engagement Survey
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 39-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 the final 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.

The complete survey packet is available for purchase for $50.  The packet includes both the long and short survey versions, coding sheets for each, a data entry template in Excel, the report evaluating survey validity and reliability (Quantifying School Engagement Research Report, which is available free), and a document for tips on survey administration.  The survey may be used with an unlimited number of students in a single research study, either once or multiple times during a singe school year, for the flat fee.
