    Since publication in 2006, noted Stanford psychologist Carol Dweck’s research on mindset has influenced P-12 curriculum and instruction, helping pre-school, elementary and secondary educators create learning environments that help children and adolescents achieve more rigorous learning outcomes. This essay poses the question of whether it should create an equal impact on higher education, and, more specifically, on Christian teacher preparation programs. The article first reviews the differences between fixed and growth mindsets, misconceptions of the two, and how the two models affect learning at all levels. The essay then gives five scripturally grounded reasons for encouraging a growth mindset in Christian higher education as well as reasons why fixed mindset often prevails. Finally, the author offers three strategies for modeling growth mindset in teacher preparation programs, using examples from Christ’s own teaching that reflect characteristics of growth mindset teaching as well as specific classroom examples from one Christian teacher preparation program

    Motivasi menjadi hal penting untuk dimiliki guru. Salah satu variabel yang baru-baru ini diteliti dalam dunia pendidikan dan diketahui berpengaruh pada motivasi adalah growth mindset. Beberapa penelitian untuk menguji efektivitas pelatihan growth mindset, namun belum diketahui efektivitasnya pada guru. Penelitian ini bertujuan mengetahui efektivitas pelatihan growth mindset pada guru, apakah terdapat perbedaan growth mindset guru sebelum dan setelah mengikuti pelatihan growth mindset? Sebanyak 15 guru dari sekolah menengah pertama berpartisipasi dalam penelitian ini. Penelitian ini menggunakan pendekatan kuantitatif, kuasi eksperimen. Sekelompok guru diberikan perlakuan dengan sebelumnya diberikan pre-test dan post-test setelahnya untuk mengetahui perbedaan growth mindset yang dimiliki guru. Adapun pre-test dan post-test dilakukan dengan memberikan skala growth mindset guru (α Cronbach = 0,783). Wilcoxon test paired sample menjadi teknik analisis statistik yang digunakan dalam studi ini. Hasil penelitian ini menunjukkan tidak terdapat perbedaan signifikan growth mindset pada guru, sebelum dan setelah mengikuti pelatihan growth mindset (M differences= 0.15; SE differences = 0.725; p>0,05), namun terjadi peningkatan skor mean setelah pelatihan. Studi lebih lanjut dibutuhkan agar terjadi efektivitas. Hasil penelitian lain yang berkaitan juga didiskusikan pada bagian pembahasan.Motivasi menjadi hal penting untuk dimiliki guru.

    In this paper, we report on the results of a questionnaire conducted with 160 teenage students in Bangladesh. The purpose of the study was to gain a deeper understanding of the students’ beliefs in regards to the innateness of intelligence(i.e., their mindsets), especially whether students believed becoming proficient in English depended on having an innate skill and luck or could be nurtured through hard work and discipline. The results of the study suggested students in Bangladesh tend to have growth mindsets in their English studies. When the sample was divided into two groups according to their courses of study, it was discovered that students studying science had significantly stronger growth mindsets for English than students studying humanities

    Agreeing is Not the Same as Accepting: Exploring Pre-Service Teachers’ Growth Mindsets

    The popularity of mindset theory has resulted in a surge of mindset interventions in schools. However, with increased popularity, there is the potential for misunderstandings and hesitations about what a growth mindset fully entails. Therefore, we sought to disentangle which components of growth mindset messages pre-service teachers find hard to accept alongside their level of agreement with growth mindset questionnaire items. We used a descriptive design with both quantitative and qualitative data to explore 182 pre-service teachers’ responses to growth mindset messages. The results of this study suggest that pre-service teachers hold a growth mindset. However, despite strong quantitative endorsements, in the qualitative analyses we determined three ways in which participants found a growth mindset hard to accept: (1) the notion of mindset theory itself, (2) the level of growth, (3) and the necessary actions behind having a growth mindset. The findings of this study suggest we need to pay close attention to false growth mindsets in theory and practice

    Teachers’ support for growth mindset and its links with students’ growth mindset, academic engagement, and achievements in lower secondary school

    Get PDF
    Academic engagement has been shown to deteriorate in lower secondary school, and it is necessary to find ways to prevent this so that students’ engagement and achievements do not decline irrevocably. Teacher support for growth mindset (TSGM) is likely to influence students’ mindsets while also promoting academic engagement and achievement. This cross-sectional study first examined the extent to which lower secondary school students (N = 1608) perceived their teachers’ classroom pedagogy as supportive of their growth mindset and students’ growth mindset beliefs. The study’s main purpose was to test a latent structural equation model specifying that perceived TSGM is directly related to students’ growth mindset, directly and indirectly related to academic engagement (behavioral and emotional), and indirectly related to academic achievement. Students’ perceived growth mindset and academic engagement thus served as intermediate variables. The results verified that TSGM was indeed related to growth mindset and academic engagement, the latter both directly and via students’ perceived growth mindset. Furthermore, TSGM was also related to academic achievement via students’ growth mindset and academic engagement. The results suggest that TSGM can facilitate students’ growth mindset and academic engagement and, thereby, achievement in lower secondary school, a period during which students may struggle with academic motivation.publishedVersio

    Measuring Growth Mindset: Validation of a Three-Item and a Single-Item Scale in Adolescents and Adults

    Get PDF
    A growth mindset is a belief that personal characteristics, specifically intellectual ability, are malleable and can be developed by investing time and effort. Numerous studies have investigated the associations between a growth mindset and academic achievement, and large intervention programs have been established to train adolescents to develop a stronger growth mindset. However, methodological research on the adequacy of the measures used to assess a growth mindset is scarce. In our study, we conducted one of the first comprehensive assessments of the psychometric properties of Dweck's widely used three-item Growth Mindset Scale in two samples (adolescents aged 14-19 years and adults aged 20-64 years). We test the comparability (i.e., measurement invariance) of the scale across these age groups. Furthermore, using the same two samples, we identified and validated a single-item measure to assess growth mindset in settings with severe time constraints. Results reveal that both the three-item and the single-item scales have acceptable psychometric properties regarding reliability, comparability, and validity. However, the results did not support some of the central tenets of mindset theory, such as that a growth mindset is positively linked to goal regulation and achievement, calling for future research on the criterion validity of a growth mindset

    Interteaching and mindset

    The researcher investigated the relationships between growth mindset and performance and statistics self-efficacy and performance in interteaching courses. The study included college students enrolled in one section of a Psychological Statistics and Measurements class. Participants completed a mindset survey indicating their level of growth mindset. Participants then completed a Statistics Self-Efficacy Survey. Finally, participants completed a demographics survey. Participants completed the mindset survey again in the middle of the semester as well as at the end of the semester. The researchers also collected behavioral data including the number of emails participants sent throughout the course and the number of preparation guides missed. Students completed four tests during the semester. There was a significant negative relationship between growth mindset of intelligence and grades. Growth mindset did not increase across time during the interteaching course. There was not a significant relationship between growth mindset of intelligence and number of preparation guides missed. There was not a significant relationship between growth mindset of intelligence and number of emails. The findings of this study suggest that aspects of interteaching courses might create an environment that supports students with lower levels of growth mindset and growth mindset may be related to long-term academic performance

    Planting the Seeds: Orchestral Music Education as a Context for Fostering Growth Mindsets

    Get PDF
    Growth mindset is an important aspect of children\u27s socioemotional development and is subject to change due to environmental influence. Orchestral music education may function as a fertile context in which to promote growth mindset; however, this education is not widely available to children facing economic hardship. This study examined whether participation in a program of orchestral music education was associated with higher levels of overall growth mindset and greater change in levels of musical growth mindset among children placed at risk by poverty. After at least 2 years of orchestral participation, students reported significantly higher levels of overall growth mindset than their peers; participating students also reported statistically significant increases in musical growth mindset regardless of the number of years that they were enrolled in orchestral music education. These findings have implications for future research into specific pedagogical practices that may promote growth mindset in the context of orchestral music education and more generally for future studies of the extra-musical benefits of high-quality music education

    Abstract. Growth Mindset is one of the determinants of a person's success in study and career. This is because people who have a growth mindset have perseverance, like challenges, and believe that their abilities will improve if they practice persistently. This quantitative study explores the growth mindset of undergraduate students studying education programs with a descriptive analysis and compares the growth mindset of students from private and public universities with independent sample t-test analysis. There were 452 undergraduate students from various universities in South Sulawesi participating: 215 students from private universities and 237 students from public universities. The results showed that the growth mindset of undergraduate students in education programs was high, both in private and public universities. However, there is a difference between the two, where the growth mindset of undergraduate students in public universirties is higher than that in private universities
