Student Engagement and Attitudes

Students Engaged in Reading Lessons

Exhibit 10.1 presents the results for the Students Engaged in Reading Lessons scale. Internationally, on average, 60 percent of the fourth grade students reported being Very Engaged during their reading lessons, another 35 percent reported being Somewhat Engaged, and only 5 percent reported being Less than Engaged. There was a positive relationship between students’ reports about being engaged and average reading achievement. Very Engaged students had higher achievement (516) than their counterparts that reported being only Somewhat Engaged (506), and students Less than Engaged had the lowest achievement (490).
