This research snapshot provides an overview of a SERN-funded project led by Mesmin Destin. This project examines the relationships between socioeconomic status and adaptive learning mindsets and offers the first estimate of the degree to which perceptions about the nature of intelligence (growth/fixed mindset) are related to both socioeconomic status and academic performance among high school students in the U.S. The snapshot shares key findings, information on the interdisciplinary research team, and insights and future directions for the project.
