How you can help my mindset research project

September 10, 2011

In my last post, I described some very interesting findings a 10 minute survey of my students’ mindset yielded. Of course, these findings would be far more interesting if I had some way to compare them with results from students across the world, and who knows how we may discover that will help our students’ learning.

Here’s all you need to do:

  1. Give your students this brief survey on intelligence and ability (link goes to editable word document). If you want to try something like this with another discipline, here’s a link to the excel document to allow you to edit the table.
  2. Enter the results into this google doc. You can optionally record your name. It would be very helpful if you would record the grade of your students and the class they are in.
  3. The spreadsheet will report the averages and Growth Mindset Indicies for all of the your entries.

  4. If you want to keep your own data for analysis, simply make a copy of the spreadsheet.
  5. If you’d like to collaborate further, please complete this google form so that I can contact you once all the data is collected. If you don’t wish to collaborate further, I would still welcome you sharing your data anonymously.
