Hi All,

 

You’ll probably find more research on K-12 in this area, but here’s some higher ed stuff: an early article that looks at academic skills and its relationship to growth mindset.  https://eric.ed.gov/?id=EJ475379

 

Seminal work on growth mindset: http://citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc/download?doi=10.1.1.583.9142&rep=rep1&type=pdf

 

 

In Dweck’s early work, growth mindset  was talked about in terms of an incremental view of intelligence. Fixed mindset was referred to as an entity view.  In researching this construct, you may want to use those search terms. The Thoughts About Achievement Questionnaire (TAA) measures “conceptions of intelligence.”  It’s just a pain in the neck to score. 

 

Here’s an oldie for you (my dissertation research): my study showed that growth mindset (an incremental view)  mediated whether students would engage  (volunteer to participate in) in study skills training.  Indeed it  did. Students who tended toward a growth mindset were more likely to participate in study skills training (p < .05).

 

The Effect of Locus of Control and Attitudes Toward Intelligence on the Study Habits of College Students (Hazard, 1997).

 

Fun stuff!

Samuel, 

 

Can you share some of the research that shows that students who learn about the theory and science of growth mindset have improved academic outcomes?

Hello Rowie,

 

My favorite way to help students learn motivation is by holding growth mindset workshops.  Peer-reviewed research shows that students who learn about the theory and science of the growth mindset have improved academic outcomes.

 

Cheers,

 

Sam

Hi Everyone,

 

I am seeking any resources or strategies to help students on the topic of motivation. In my years, I felt that this has constantly been a challenge to address especially in a group setting. Any suggestions or things that people have done that have seemed to help or impact students on this topic would be greatly appreciated!

 

Thanks!
