About: 

Stereotype threat is a subtle, yet significant experience that can increase the risk an individual becomes concerned that they are confirming a negative stereotype about a valued group to which they belong. It can impact performance in school, including test performance, engagement, task preparation, and collaboration. A CAST research team studied the effects of stereotype threat on collaboration in a middle-school inquiry-based science context. In addition, as part of a research-to-practice model, CAST piloted online professional development trainings for educators to build classroom strategies to mitigate the effects of stereotype threat in their context.
