written by Erin S. Lane and Sara E. Harris
We developed a classroom observation protocol for quantitatively measuring student engagement in large university classes. The Behavioral Engagement Related to Instruction (BERI) protocol can be used to provide timely feedback to instructors as to how they can improve student engagement in their classrooms. We tested BERI on seven courses with different instructors and pedagogy. BERI achieved excellent interrater agreement (>95%) with a one hour training session with new observers. It also showed consistent patterns of variation in engagement with instructor actions and classroom activity. Most notably, it showed that there was substantially higher engagement among the same group of students when interactive teaching methods were used compared with more traditional didactic methods. The same general variations in student engagement with instructional methods were present in all parts of the room and for different instructors.
