The key variable in determining the performance of students on degree programmes is their level of engagement. The principal component of this is 'time-on task' but it also involves a number of other aspects of participation in the university community. Instruments for measuring engagement have been developed in North America and Australasia and used to inform curriculum change and are potentially more instructive than the NSS. The HEA has run pilot projects with a number of institutions to test the concept in the UK. The meeting will discuss the use of these surveys in approaches to student engagement and the significance of the results.
