On November 1, the North Dakota Department of Public Instruction (NDDPI) successfully launched AdvancED Student Engagement Surveys to support statewide continuous improvement and accountability. A steering committee of 50 representative stakeholders from across the state identified student engagement as a vital factor of student growth. North Dakota is the only state that selected student engagement as a non-academic indicator for the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) plan. The measure of student engagement will be included as an indicator on school dashboards. AdvancED is proud to support this important activity.
