Overlap more than we would expect theoretically

This preview shows page 7 - 9 out of 13 pages.

Overlap more than we would expect theoretically – because weview them as distinct and independent of each other-Other results:oBoys got more process praise than girls.This is consistent with other research on how teachers treat boys and girls(Dweck, 1978).When boys fail, they get process feedback“you aren’t paying attention” or “you didn’t try hard or put in anyeffort”Doesn’t damage self-viewsWhen girls succeed, they give more person praise“you are so smart” or “you are such a good girl”oBoys later had more incremental theories of intelligence than did girls (nodifference for sociomoral domain).
oThis theory difference is consistent with the finding that girls more than boys mayattribute failure to lack of ability, and show drops in persistence and motivationafter failure, especially in science and math.Consistent with research showing that girls more than boys see failure as alack of abilityEspecially in areas like science and mathExample study oftraining childrenon how to interpret failure in an incremental view-Idea = train children to think about performance in different ways to help them later-How to help children?
What is link between self-theories and academic achievement (Sisk et al., 2018)?
