Seminario“Teacher’s Growth Mindset: Effect on Student Academic Achievement. Evidence from Chile” (co-autores Susana Claro, Verónica Cabezas y Gabriel Cruz)

Hora: Viernes 29 de mayo, 12:00 pm.

Abstract: Growing evidence shows that a student's growth mindset (the belief that intelligence is malleable) can benefit their academic achievement. However, little is known about how teachers’ growth mindset affects students’ academic achievement due to limited information worldwide. In this research, we study the impact of teachers' growth mindset on academic achievement for a nationwide sample of students in eight and tenth grade in Chile in 2017. Using a student fixed effect model, we find that being assigned to a teacher with a growth mindset increases standardized test scores of students by approximately 0.02 standard deviations, with larger effects on students with high GPA, female students, and especially on students in low socioeconomic schools.
