The High School Survey of Student Engagement (HSSSE) is a survey designed to investigate student engagement, the attitudes, perceptions, and beliefs of high school students about their work. The survey is the central component of a research and professional development project directed by the Center for Evaluation & Education Policy (CEEP) at Indiana University. The primary purpose of the project is to help high schools explore, understand, and strengthen student engagement. [1] [2]

HSSSE was first piloted in 2003, and has been available to schools in the United States since 2004. From 2006 through 2009, more than 300,000 students across over 40 states participated in HSSSE. The next administration of HSSSE will be in Fall 2010.

Overview reports summarizing the aggregate data are published periodically. Among the recent reports are
