Keywords:COVID-19, Pandemic, Secondary School Students, Study Engagement
Quality concerns, inculcating moral values, and developing life skills among young learners are the motto of an educational institution. In these processes, every individual learner expects to engage with their curricular and co-curricular activities in a positive manner. Due to the global challenge of the COVID-19 pandemic, the academic processes in all educational systems are getting collapsed. Students and teachers are missing face-to-face interactions, getting a lot of hurdles in connectivity, and planning their academic engagements on online platforms. Apart from these, many other factors influence the student's academic engagement and getting subject knowledge during this pandemic period. Students' involvement and engagement in the virtual mode might vary with the variables like school types, gender, and locality. Therefore, in this study, the investigators attempt to elicit secondary school students' perceptions of their study engagements during the pandemic. The study reveals that most students engaged in the academic activities at an average level during the pandemic. There is a significant difference between the male and female students study engagements.
