Test Your Growth Mindset

    Mindset is a simple idea discovered by world-renowned Stanford University psychologist Carol Dweck in decades of research on achievement and success—a simple idea that makes all the difference. Teaching a growth mindset creates motivation and productivity in the worlds of business, education, and sports. This mindset quiz is recommended in all of the Growth Mindset micro-credentials.

    This is a tool created by Mindset Works to get a quick assessment of your students’ mindsets—their beliefs about the malleability of intelligence, the relative importance of learning and perfect performance, and their attitudes toward effort and mistakes.
  • Allison Powell says:
    It is incredibly helpful as a teacher to know how your students think about their learning. How do they feel about learning new material? Do they think that they are in charge of their learning, or is it something that is out of their control? Are some people simply just smarter than others? Give your students this simple and straightforward survey in order to see what they think. Some teachers may choose to give the survey at the beginning of the year in order to get to know their students.

    This is a one page anticipatory set to gauge where your students stand on the topic. I usually compare the anticipatory set to the last day writing activity that we do.

    I gave my small pullout group of elementary students the pre-assessment from School on Wheels. They completed the assessment. Each student is at a different level in having a growth mindset - they range from a fixed mindset with some growth tendencies to a strong growth mindset. I modified the Ppt found on the School on Wheels site along with resources from Dojo and the Dweck resources.

    I like this short survey. You can change the words a bit to make them more appropriate for Kindergarten students but I love that it is only three questions.

    Before implementing Mindset, several teachers started with the strengths-based instruction in the hopes that students would start here to gain self-confidence and start the open-mindedness toward Mindset. We had students take a free online survey, and although it's a bit long, we were able to do this with EBD students and it's an amazing tool.
