Bridget Morton (Mars Hill University, USA) and Jessica Van Cleave (Mars Hill University, USA)
DOI: 10.4018/978-1-7998-0323-2.ch002
In this chapter, the authors provide a formative assessment model geared toward supporting what Carol Dweck called a growth-mindset. The authors describe the model in detail, then describe an action research study in which they collaborated with public school teachers to put the model to work with high-achieving, second grade students in the context of reading groups. Finally, the authors provide key results from the implementation and make recommendations for practitioners interested in using formative assessment to promote growth-mindset.
