Open tasks typically have more than one right answer, take longer to complete, and draw on different skill-sets and concepts.
These types of tasks promote a growth mindset because they help students focus on the learning process, rather than just the final answer. Additionally, open tasks allow students of mixed ability levels to engage in the problem, which helps all students feel successful and capable in the classroom.
