This enquiry sets out to investigate the impact of whole class target setting in the classroom. The subject of this enquiry was selected after discussion amongst a group of probationer teachers whereby it was queried as to how a combination of defined targets and implementation of a class-wide growth mindset would benefit learners. Broda et al. (2018) noted that growth mindset interventions can have a significant improvement on pupil’s grades. Hence, it was decided to evaluate how whole class target setting, coupled with encouragement of a growth mindset, can influence the learning of the class.
The aim of this enquiry was to investigate how target setting, coupled with a growth mindset, can positively or negatively impact the learning of the pupils.
