A student’s perspective about themselves, their school, and their ability to achieve their goals impacts their likelihood to succeed. For example, students who believe that intelligence is not fixed, and that they can improve with practice are more likely to rebound from failure and ultimately persist. This is referred to as having a growth mindset.
The Nudge Hub includes a library of mindset and mattering nudging templates for fall, spring, and summer terms. Read through the nudge campaigns and decide whether a mattering or mindset message is most likely to have a positive impact on persistence for each student group.
