Research suggests the need to assess both positive and negative forms of student engagement. The purpose of this study was to pilot disaffection items along with the Student Engagement Instrument within a sample of middle school students from a rural county in the Southeastern U.S. Results hold implications for our theoretical understanding of student engagement and disaffection, and how these constructs are related to educational outcomes of interest to schools.
