  • Abstract:

    This study explored motivation and engagement among North American (the United States and Canada; n = 1, 540), U.K. ( n = 1, 558), Australian ( n = 2, 283), and Chinese ( n = 3, 753) secondary school students. Motivation and engagement were assessed via students' responses to the Motivation and Engagement Scale–High School (MES–HS). Confirmatory factor analysis using M plus found good fit for each of the four samples. Multi-group invariance tests demonstrated comparable factor structure, reliability, distributional properties, and correlations with a set of validational factors across the four groups. Results hold implications for international assessment of motivation and engagement, research, and data analysis.
