Student Engagement in Mathematics Scale
The Student Engagement in Mathematics Scale provides three composite scores indicating students’ cognitive, emotional, and social engagement in a specific mathematics class. Internal consistency reliability, based on a large sample of fifth graders (n = 387) in the mid-Atlantic region, ranged from .74 – .91. An IRT analysis suggested a modified 13-item instrument.
