Changing Pupils’ Mindsets plus Effectiveness Trial
Summary & aims
32 schools are involved in the project - 5 in the pupil level intervention and 27 in the teacher training intervention. The outcome measures for both interventions are provided by GL Assessments: the Progress in English (PiE) and Measuring Success in Maths. Changes in 'Mindset' are measured using Carol Dweck’s original items, utilising a 5 point likert scale.
NIESR is evaluating the impact of the interventions, using these test scores. We are also conducting a process evaluation which is establishing fidelity of the delivery, exploring teachers' experiences of the programme and assessing potential for wider roll-out.
Timescale and funder
The evaluation is funded by the Education Endowment Foundation. It began in 2012 and was completed in 2014 when the final report was published.
More information is and output is available about the project on the EEF website project page
