The Engagement Project

Task Engagement Survey

Dear English Language Educator:

Research shows that if students are engaged in learning activities they will learn better. We want to help English language students and teachers in both ESL and EFL contexts learn and teach more effectively, and you can help us by completing this survey about your own teaching or ask your students to complete it about their learning. The student and teacher versions of the survey have been translated into 10 languages so that you can choose a suitable version and answer the questions or guide your students to answer the questions as completely and specifically as possible. The findings of this study will lead to a learning model that could potentially benefit English language learners worldwide. In addition, the engagement principles discovered through this research may be adopted in other learning contexts for creating a more effective teaching/learning environment.

By taking this survey you agree that your answers can be used as data to help us create a task engagement model. We guarantee that your data will not be identified and cannot be traced to you; in other words, the data are anonymous. We appreciate your help!

Note: This survey is for English language teachers and learners. If you are not an English language teacher or learner, please do not take this survey. Also, the survey is password-protected; the password for student surveys is “students2018” and for teachers “teachers2018” (without quotes).  We will be happy to provide you with the results when they are analyzed.

If you have any questions or need any help with this task, please email us at  jegbert@wsu.edu or s.shahrokni@wsu.edu.
