Learning Analytics for Smarter Psychological Interventions (30m)

MOOCs fail to meet their full potential of “educating the world” (Pappano, 2012) when they fail to support students who underperform or drop out due to a fixed mindset (Dweck, 2007) – the mistaken and self-limiting belief that their intelligence is unchangeable. Psychologists have developed short interventions to both influence mindset and improve learning outcomes, but they lack detailed evidence of the specific behaviors that bridge the gap between the two. I propose to use tools from learning analytics to develop a “behavioral mindset metric” that can link self-reported mindset with gains in assessment scores and retention. If successful, this work will improve the learning outcomes of disengaged students, provide researchers with a better understanding of growth-mindset behaviors, and demonstrate the utility of learning analytics for assessing non-cognitive competencies.
