Growth Mindset Evidence Snapshot
From the brief: "This What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) report, part of the WWC’s Supporting Postsecondary Success topic area, explores the effects of Growth Mindset interventions on postsecondary students’ academic achievement, college enrollment, and progressing in college. The WWC identified 15 studies of Growth Mindset interventions. Six of these studies meet WWC standards. The evidence presented in this report is from studies of the impact of Growth Mindset interventions on postsecondary students—including Black, White, Hispanic, first-generation, and Pell grant-eligible students—in both public and private postsecondary settings. Growth Mindset had mixed effects on academic achievement and no discernible effects on college enrollment and progressing in college."
