This short research brief and accompanying video, produced by the UChicago Consortium on School Research, highlight some of the big ideas from their research on noncognitive factors.  It outlines the importance of the following five factors to student success in the classroom and beyond and examines the importance of student’s environments in the development of these factors

  • Mindsets
  • Perseverance
  • Behaviors
  • Learning strategies
  • Social skills

These resources can serve as a call to action to any adults that work with students, from teachers and coaches to parents and community leaders, reminding them of the power they have to help youth develop healthy social and emotional skills, mindsets, and behaviors. For a deeper look, readers can check out the UChicago Consortium’s seminal report, Teaching Adolescents to Become Learners.
