A Reconceptualization of CCSSE's Benchmarks of Student Engagement
Nora, Amaury; Crisp, Gloria; Matthews, Cissy
Review of Higher Education, v35 n1 p105-130 Fall 2011
As a great deal of importance is now placed on student engagement, it is just as imperative to establish the soundness of constructs underlying those survey instruments and benchmarks used in providing indicators of such. This study investigates the dimensionalities of student engagement among community college students as measured by the Community College Survey of Student Engagement (CCSSE) and tests the degree of predictive validity of its five benchmarks on academic performance. Moreover, the researchers propose a reconceptualization of a theoretical framework on student engagement, one that focuses predominantly on both behavioral and attitudinal facets. (Contains 2 tables, 2 figures and 1 footnote.)
