Launch of OECD PISA report on growth mindset

The OECD, in partnership with the Yidan Prize Foundation, will launch a new PISA report on student growth mindset on Thursday, 8 April 2021 followed by a press conference held in collaboration with the American Educational Research Association (AERA) and the Yidan Prize Foundation at 22:30 pm HKT.

This new report “Sky’s the limit: Growth mindset, students, and schools in PISA” provides analyses on student growth mindset, a concept much discussed in the current field of psychology. Growth mindset is the belief that someone’s ability and intelligence can be developed over time. PISA collected international comparable data on “growth mindset” from nearly 80 countries/economies for the first time in 2018. The report sheds lights on how educators, policy makers and researchers can further support the potential of students around the world.

Professor Carol Dweck (Stanford University), Mr Andreas Schleicher (OECD) and Mr Edward Ma (Yidan Prize Foundation), will open a press conference to discuss the findings, which will be followed by Q&A with reporters, moderated by Mr Tony Pals (AERA) on April 8, 22:30 –23:30 pm HKT. This event is organised as a part of the 2021 AERA Virtual Annual Meeting, in collaboration with the AERA and the OECD.

This event will be broadcast live. Here is a link for public viewing. You may also refer to the full report. More information on PISA is available at
