Affect plays a pivotal role in students' experience of school, relationships with peers and teachers, classroom behavior, and academic achievement. The purpose of this article is to review affective indicators, their assessments, and how these are used in school settings. We review findings based on a core set of affective variables that have been examined in the classroom, as well as methods that have been used to measure these constructs. We make the case that measuring affect is important in a variety of educational contexts, including those most especially related to school and government policy, research, and evaluation.
