Mindset in Context: Developing New Methodologies to Study Mindset in Interview Data
written by Angela Little, Vashti Sawtelle, and Bridget Humphrey
Mindset is a well-studied area of the psychology literature with a straightforward proposition: if you believe it's possible to grow your intelligence, you are more likely to improve in school. The proposed mechanism behind this link is that students with growth mindset exhibit "mastery-oriented behaviors" in response to challenges, such as embracing hard work and strategizing how to improve. Mindset is typically studied through large-N survey measures with context-general Likert scale items measuring beliefs about the nature of talent and intelligence. We argue that such context-general survey measures are limited in application, particularly in the context of introductory college STEM courses. We describe a novel mindset coding scheme for interview data and apply it to a set of exploratory interviews toward examining how mindset may exhibit some context-dependence.
