College students become most engaged in their academics when they work on research with faculty members and perform service-learning activities, a recent study has shown.
Boise State University's Institutional Research has released an analysis of the study,
"2015 National Survey of Student Engagement," which surveys senior and freshmen university students every three years.
The survey looks at student success and how it is affected by activities such as studying abroad, internships, field experiences and other events that can be defined as having positive effects.
Although all of the activities showed some degree of engagement, service learning and research with faculty received the highest marks. The study also determined that some students are not as engaged in these types of activities as others.
