Abstract Today, educational engagement is considered one of the most important factors in predicting good student learning and educational suc-cess. However, most of the instruments described do not include all the key factors linked to academic engagement: motivations, values, learning contexts, emotional state and management strategies. The aim of this study is to develop a scale to assess the level of educational engagement in Higher Education students (MMSEE) that overcomes this limitation. Methods: Exploratory and confirmatory factorial analyses, as well as a study of internal consistency, convergent and discriminant validity, were carried out on a sample of 764 students from the University of Seville (Spain), belonging to all areas of knowledge and different degree courses. Results: A multifacto-rial structure of educational engagement with five factors that explain a variance close to 65.78%, with an excellent internal consistency (a = .91) and with significant indicators of convergent and discriminant validity is explored and confirmed with a very good level of adjustment. Conclusions: It is concluded that MMSEE is a valid and reliable instrument to measure the level of engagement of classrooms, as well as to improve the understanding of the construct through its factors. © 2021: Editum.
