Student Voice: Student Engagement Tips from Students: Free eBook

Focus on Engagement not Test Scores!

  • Focusing first on increasing student engagement, rather than on improving test scores, can actually foster greater gains in students’ academic, emotional, social, and behavioral achievement (Klem & Connell, 2005). Research has shown that this applies to achievement along with thinking skills and problem solving.
  • While the importance of student engagement has not changed over the years, the typical student being taught has. This means that the most effective approaches for engaging students today may have changed. The authors include data that shows how modern students are plugged into modern technology.
