Student engagement during learning activities is an important indicator in reflecting on student achievement. This study is to determine student engagement through Outcome Based Education (OBE) based upon four factors of student engagement: behavioral engagement, agentic engagement, cognitive engagement and emotional engagement. These factors have a relationship with student achievement. The sample size of this study consists of 148 students from the Commerce Department of Politeknik Tuanku Sultanah Bahiyah (PTSB). The methodology used for this study is quantitative analysis. Student engagement and achievement was also analyzed using SPSS version 20 of the instrument constructed based on Reeves (2013), and the reliability was 0.78. The results show that students are more likely to engage in behaviors (𝑥=4.07,𝑆𝐷=0.50) in teaching and learning than emotional engagement (𝑥=3.90,𝑆𝐷=0.52), cognitive engagment (𝑥=3.93,𝑆𝐷=0.52) and agentic engagement (𝑥=4.05,𝑆𝐷=0.53). The Pearson results also show that there is no significant relationship between the dimensions of student engagement and achievement; however, there is a positive significant relationship between four factors of student engagement. This implies that student engagement does not have any relationship to their achievement. However, this study suggests that deeper study could be done to look at the relationship with achievement.
