Summary:

9th grade students in 10 high schools completed an online growth-mindset intervention module based on that in Paunesku et al., 2015 but revised following a design process. Focusing on students with low levels of prior achievement, students who completed the growth-mindset module, as compared to those who completed a control module, earned higher core academic GPA in the first semester of 9th grade and reduced the percentage who received D or F GPAs by four percentage points.
