WWC Reviews the Research on Growth Mindset

The What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) reviewed the research on Growth Mindset interventions that are designed to improve college persistence and academic achievement by encouraging students to view intelligence as a "malleable" characteristic that grows with effort, and to view academic challenges as temporary setbacks that they can overcome. The WWC found that Growth Mindset interventions have potentially positive effects on academic achievement and no discernible effects on progressing in college or college enrollment. » More info
