Intelligence mindset is a belief about development of their own intelligence. This research aimed to develop intelligence mindset scale for undergraduate student, to construct an item bank for an intelligence mindset scale, to develop intelligence mindset classification program using variable-length computerized testing, and to compare intelligence mindset among undergraduate students. The study process consists of four phases: 1) construct quality items for an intelligence mindset scale, 2) construct a quality item bank for an intelligence mindset scale, 3) develop intelligence mindset classification program using variable-length computerized testing, and 4) compare intelligence mindset among undergraduate student in Health Sciences, Social Sciences and Humanity, and Sciences and Technology by using Chi-Square Test. The research results indicated that
1) There are 99 quality items for an intelligence mindset scale.
2) The items were used to construct a quality item bank for an intelligence mindset scale that was divided into nine sub-item banks including of Verbal-Linguistic (6 items), Logical-Mathematical (7 items), Visual-Spatial (9 items), Musical (11 items), Bodily-Kinaesthetic (8 items), Interpersonal (15 items), Intrapersonal (15 items), Naturalistic (15 items), and Existential (13 items).
3) Intelligence mindset classification program using variable-length computerized testing was suitable for use in high level.
4) The intelligence mindset among undergraduate students in Logical-Mathematical component, Bodily-Kinaesthetic component, and Naturalistic component were found the significant difference at the .05 level.
