Summary

A student's growth mindset and their susceptibility to gender stereotype threat both have a strong influence over the student's academic achievements. This research project will survey a random sample of Palo Alto High School students, analyzing their level of growth mindset and the amount to which they identify with stereotypes that correspond with their reported gender. The purpose of this study is to discover how these two terms correlate, helping us more understand the importance of having a growth mindset, and providing us with ideas to help students realize their fullest academic potential.
