Engagement in learning has increasingly become an important area of focus. This paper addresses the difficulty of accurately measuring engagement through prior methods, and presents a method of measuring engagement concretely through the use of a detector. We build off of prior work in operationalizing and detecting disengaged behaviors which are detrimental to engagement through the use of a real-time detector (Gobert, Baker & Wixon, 2015; Wixon, 2013). This detector is modified and applied to students engaging with the Inquiry-Intelligent Tutoring System, Inq-ITS (Gobert et al, 2013). Lastly, we look at relationships between disengagement and performance during science inquiry learning.
