Abstract: Abstract—The study seeks to ascertain the impact of intervention programme to enhance implicit theories of intelligence on academic self-efficacy of seventh standard students. The study uses factorial design for conducting the experiment. The intervention programme to enhance implicit theories of intelligence was conducted on 65 students of standard VII studying in schools affiliated to the SSC Board and with semi-english medium of instruction. The tools used in the study is the academic self- efficacy scale and (implicit theories of intelligence scale). The researcher has developed an instructional programme to enhance implicit theories of intelligence. The techniques used to test the hypotheses include ANCOVA. The instructional programme was equally effective in developing academic self-efficacy of seventh standard students, irrespective of their socio-economic status as there was no difference between the students belonging to low, middle and high socio-economic status on academic self-efficacy scores. As compared to the traditional method of teaching or control group, the instructional programme to enhance implicit theories of intelligence is found to be more effective in enhancing academic self-efficacy of seventh standard students.
