Wang, Ze; Bergin, Christi; Bergin, David A. – School Psychology Quarterly, 2014
Research on factors that may promote engagement is hampered by the absence of a measure of classroom-level engagement.

The purpose of this study was to examine the effect Serious Educational Games (SEGs) had on student interest in science in a federally funded game-based learning project. It can be argued that today's students are more likely to engage in video games than they are to interact in live, face-to-face learning environments. With a keen eye on…
