Moreira, Paulo; Cunha, Diana; Inman, Richard A. – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2020
Student engagement is typically regarded as being a multidimensional construct, but there remains no clear consensus about its precise conceptualization.

According to (inter)national policy and curriculum documents, the acquisition of research skills is an important objective of secondary education. However, the conceptualization and hence the operationalization of this concept seems ambiguous. Furthermore, no test exists to assess students' proficiency in (a broad range of) research skills in a…

Whitney, Brendan M.; Cheng, Ying; Brodersen, Alex S.; Hong, Maxwell R. – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2019
Student engagement has been a focal point of research, partly due to its efficacy in promoting long-term academic success. However, many scales are designed to measure engagement across the school setting rather than within specific classes. Though some accomplish the latter, there are even fewer designed to measure student engagement for…

Pan, Jingtong; Zaff, Jonathan F. – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2019
In this research, we examined the construct of a school engagement scale using exploratory structural equation modeling (ESEM). This study involved a translated measurement model that was originally developed by Li and Lerner for U.S. youth, and data from a sample of eighth-, ninth-, and 11th-grade Chinese adolescents (N = 364). First, the results…
