Research undertaken in New Zealand and other countries consistently suggests that student engagement in school and learning decreases during the middle years of schooling. The aim of this literature review, which was undertaken by Evaluation Associates and Massey University on behalf of the Ministry of Education, was to explore the relationship between academic engagement and student achievement and what can be done to raise levels of engagement in New Zealand schools.

Purpose

The Ministry of Education is committed to ensuring the education system works for all students. The aim of the current project is to review the literature to find out more about student engagement and the relationship between academic engagement and student achievement and then to consider what teachers can do to raise levels of student engagement within their classes and schools.
