Title: Growth Mindset Intervention Report
Description: This What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) intervention report summarizes the research on Growth Mindset interventions that support postsecondary success. Growth Mindset interventions aim 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. Based on the research, the WWC found that Growth Mindset interventions have potentially positive effects on academic achievement and have no discernible effects on college enrollment and progressing in college.
