This paper summarizes the development of the Innovative Engagement Scale (IES; TUES Type 1 DUE 1245018). The IES is an assessment instrument designed for researchers to gather evidence for how innovative instructional strategies impact student interactive engagement and classroom innovation. The instrument contains open ended and Likert scale items organized into five subsections that can be used to gather evidence for three constructs: a) innovative instructional strategies, b) interactive engagement, and c) student innovation. The items are designed to be administered online. The instrument was developed and tested over the course of three data collections (N = 1365) in post-secondary energy science engineering courses. Reliability and validity evidence as well key findings from analysis of student responses to the instrument are summarized. This material is based upon work supported by the National Science Foundation under Grant No. 1245018.
