Chapter 1: What is student engagement in learning?
Structure of the survey
The survey consists of 64 questions, grouped by the engagement ‘indicator’ to which they relate. The indicators are presented in Fig. 1.1 below. Most questions relate to a specific engagement indicator. There are also questions that do not directly relate to a specific indicator, but that are included in the survey because of their contribution to a broad understanding of student engagement. Each indicator score is calculated from responses to the multiple questions that relate to that indicator. These results are summarised in Chapter 2 and responses to all questions are available in Appendix 3.
This report presents results from the 2022 StudentSurvey.ie fieldwork. The question set was revised in 2021. The revised questionnaire was used for the first time in 2022 and will continue to be used for the foreseeable future.
