Mindset Scale for Learning English
This assessment tool was developed to help learners find out about their mindset for learning English. The tool has been adapted from the reference book Mindset: The new psychology for success by C. S. Dweck (2006). It is a 4-Point Likert Scale and has 10 items about mindsets and learning English. The responses to each item go from a complete agreement to a complete disagreement and there is no neutral choice option. By using this tool, learners can figure out what kind of a mindset they have and finally reach a particular decision on their path to learning English.
