dc.description.abstractEarly school withdrawal, commonly referred to as dropout, is associated with a plethora of negative outcomes for students, schools, and society. Student engagement, however, presents a promising theoretical model and cornerstone of school completion interventions. The purpose of the present study was to validate an elementary version (SEI-E) of a student engagement survey, the SEI. The psychometric properties of this measure were assessed based on the responses of an ethnically diverse sample of 2,504 students from an urban locale. Exploratory factor analyses indicated that the six-factor model of engagement obtained with the original SEI (validated on students in grades 6-12) was replicated with the present sample of early elementary school students (grades 3-5). Discussion and implications of these findings are presented in the context of student engagement and dropout prevention.
