In this paper we set out research being undertaken to develop measures of learner engagement. Engagement is defined by variables of involvement, wellbeing and thinking. The measures are designed to be sensitive to the effect of alternative pedagogy on students from pre-school to final years of secondary and to be usable across a wide range of learning environments from formal schooling to less formal community based contexts. The paper begins with a discussion of suitable theoretical models and establishes linkages to relevant existing work. The current stage of development of a set of instruments is discussed and the application illustrated in three different measurement contexts. Initial findings for each of these contexts are outlined. While development is continuing, the initial results show that it feasible to measure engagement using both observation and learner self-report and that engagement is an indicator of quality of the learning environment and predicts important learning outcomes.
