Resumen

ZAPATA, Gonzalo; LEIHY, Pete  y  THEURILLAT, Daniel. Student engagement in higher education: adaptation and validation of an assessment instrument in chilean universities. Calidad en la educación [online]. 2018, n.48, pp.204-250. ISSN 0718-4565.  http://dx.doi.org/10.31619/caledu.n48.482.

To understand how students learn is a complex, yet indispensable, endeavor for quality improvement in higher education. Student engagement questionnaires offer useful snapshots to capture the diversity of learning experiences. Nonetheless, the quality of evidence that they provide depends upon the instruments’ validity and contextual relevancy. This article reports on the adjusting, piloting and validation of a questionnaire to measure student engagement, among a sample of undergraduates at three Chilean universities. We adapted and validated, in the Chilean context, indices and items regarding student commitment from the 2013 version of the National Survey of Student Engagement. The results suggest that the student engagement indices only partially function and thus require modifications to significantly improve validity. To that end, the processes of adaptation and validation of the instrument are reported, as well as adjustment alternatives. This research contributes to the improvement of the validity of the instrument in the local context, providing insights on student engagement and experiences in Chile.
