The principle of Growth Mindset notes that in potential activities how someone considers their abilities determines how they think, feel and act. It's probably now the most popular theory of psychology in education. Growth Mindset has been correlated with a range of benefits including resilience, positive feedback, better dealing with change, toughness, and pro-social behaviour. These are often the behaviors in school that are associated with doing well. But is it translating into better grades?

Numerous studies conducted by many different researchers have found a strong relationship between students with a mindset of growth and the grades they have attained. Researchers Susana Claro, David Paunesku, and Stamford University's Carol Dweck recently reported a large-scale study of over 160,000 students) finding that growth attitude predicts grades across all socio-economic levels in Chilean students.

Another study by Jason Snipes, who is WestEd's Director of Alliance Research, found that those with lower grades were more likely to have a fixed mindset in 121, 835 students in America. These studies are interesting and very important because they use a very large sample size (possibly adding weight to their findings). Likewise, David Paunesku's other research, Gregory Walton.

Over 1,500 students from Stamford University and the University of Texas, Carissa Romero, Eric Smith, David Yeager, and Carol Dweck found that incorporating an increasing mentality with a sense of mission action increased the probability of students completing math, English, and Science classes and doing better along the way.
