Research conducted in the Cognitive Ctrl Lab assessing the impact of autobiographical growth narratives on women’s math performance was presented at the APS Annual Convention in Boston, MA on May 25th, 2017. In this work, we tested whether requiring women to write about a time in their life where they showed growth in some area (growth narrative) would lead to better performance in math. While performance improved relative to controls, the growth narrative condition lead to similar levels of performance compared with existing interventions. Future work will test the durability of growth narratives.
