This project supports construction and civil engineering faculty in their efforts to develop, evaluate, and improve the delivery of their courses. The work, guided by an instrument development framework, develops an instrument to measure students’ social engagement in a classroom. The expected outcomes of this project are: (1) an exploratory framework for how construction and civil engineering faculty make choices and engage in a classroom; (2) a deeper understanding of processes that underlie social engagement in construction and civil engineering classrooms; and, (3) a valid and reliable social engagement instrument with modular subscales to measure student engagement in civil and construction engineering education. The cognitive engagement instrument is being developed by a collaborating institution. This project is funded by the National Science Foundation.
