Abstract
This study aims to explore the student engagement and learning development in higher education based on social economic status. The data were collected by using the student engagement questionnaire in Taiwan. There are 2,651 valid cases were analyzed in this study. Both t-test and one-way ANOVA were applied to interpret the data. The result reveals that the student engagement and learning development are in unsatisfied level; their participations are moderate; attitudes and approaches for learning are in middle level, and students’ learning development is below the average level. Both low and high SES group are inferior in their engagement and learning development. The findings can be used to ameliorate this issue in the higher education system.
