Summary Evaluating for engagement: Enhancing learning in the middle years is a key resource for teachers and schools in their investigations of what works in the middle years of schooling. The challenges associated with engaging students during this phase of their schooling are widely documented. As a result, practical and powerful ideas about how to go about evaluating the success or otherwise of programs are needed. Along with case studies describing innovative practice and a review of key issues related to student engagement, this text provides practical resources in relation to:•a user-friendly evaluation framework that values the perspectives of students and their teachers in finding out what works and what doesn't work in their contexts•specific strategies that can be used to evaluate school-based initiatives •building a collaborative inquiry culture among teachers•successful teaching and learning strategies transferable to arange of contexts.
