Torres, Amada
Independent School, v75 n1 Fall 2015
Fifty-nine NAIS member schools participated in the second year of a three-year pilot study sponsored by the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) and the NAIS Commission on Accreditation on the use of HSSSE -- the High School Survey of Student Engagement, administered by Indiana University. HSSSE is designed to investigate the attitudes, perceptions, and beliefs of high school students about their schoolwork. In the 2014 NAIS pilot study, students were asked to respond to questions in three categories: (1) cognitive, intellectual, and academic engagement; (2) social, behavioral, and participatory engagement; and (3) emotional engagement. This brief article highlights the findings from this pilot study.
