This paper presents results of a study conducted with undergraduate students involved in either problem- or project-based curricula (Medicine and Engineering, respectively) at the UniversitĂ© de Sherbrooke, Canada. The objective of the present research was to measure the impact of these innovative curricula on studentsâ€™ engagement and persistence in higher education. Our research question was: What determinants better predict studentsâ€™ engagement and persistence in innovative curricula such as PBL? Nine variables were examined as potential predictors of both factors (engagement and persistence). Results showed a variation in variables predicting engagement and persistence, with the most significant predictor being stress related.
