John Hattie developed a way of ranking various influences in different meta-analyses related to learning and achievement according to their effect sizes.

138 Influences Related To Achievement - Hattie effect size list

In his ground-breaking study “Visible Learning” he ranked 138 influences that are related to learning outcomes from very positive effects to very negative effects. Hattie found that the average effect size of all the interventions he studied was 0.40. Therefore he decided to judge the success of influences relative to this ‘hinge point’, in order to find an answer to the question “What works best in education?” Hattie studied six areas that contribute to learning: the student, the home, the school, the curricula, the teacher, and teaching and learning approaches. But Hattie did not only provide a list of the relative effects of different influences on student achievement. Teachers toolbox - Professor John Hattie's Table of Effect Sizes. Hattie says ‘effect sizes' are the best way of answering the question ‘what has the greatest influence on student learning?

'. An effect-size of 1.0 is typically associated with: • advancing learners' achievement by one year, or improving the rate of learning by 50% • a correlation between some variable (e.g., amount of homework) and achievement of approximately .50 • A two grade leap in GCSE, e.g. from a C to an A grade An effect size of 1.0 is clearly enormous! Below is Hattie's table of effect sizes. Terms used in the table (Interpreted by Geoff Petty) • An effect size of 0.5 is equivalent to a one grade leap at GCSE • An effect size of 1.0 is equivalent to a two grade leap at GCSE • ‘Number of effects is the number of effect sizes from well designed studies that have been averaged to produce the average effect size. • An effect size above 0.4 is above average for educational research.

Bjork Learning and Forgetting Lab - Research. Applying Cognitive Psychology to Enhance Educational Practice The primary goal of this research, which is funded by the James S.

Bjork Learning and Forgetting Lab - Research

McDonnell foundation, is to promote learning and memory performance within educational contexts through the investigation of principles in cognitive psychology. Studies address issues of transfer-appropriate and material-appropriate processing between encoding and retrieval. Applying tests in order to enhance learning and determining the desirable amount and timing of feedback regarding an individual's memory performance are methods that are currently under investigation. The overlying theme of "desirable difficulties," first introduced by Robert Bjork (1994), is also explored through manipulations in the spacing of learning events and the study schedule produced by interleaving various to-be-learned items, such as English-Swahili translated word pairs or prose materials.

I. In recent years, we have explored this phenomenon in a variety of ways. II. R. III. Teaching Excellence in Adult Literacy (TEAL) Metacognition is one’s ability to use prior knowledge to plan a strategy for approaching a learning task, take necessary steps to problem solve, reflect on and evaluate results, and modify one’s approach as needed. It helps learners choose the right cognitive tool for the task and plays a critical role in successful learning. What Is Metacognition? Metacognition refers to awareness of one’s own knowledge—what one does and doesn’t know—and one’s ability to understand, control, and manipulate one’s cognitive processes (Meichenbaum, 1985).

It includes knowing when and where to use particular strategies for learning and problem solving as well as how and why to use specific strategies. Metacognition is the ability to use prior knowledge to plan a strategy for approaching a learning task, take necessary steps to problem solve, reflect on and evaluate results, and modify one’s approach as needed. Elements of Metacognition Why Teach Metacognitive Skills? Metacognition? - Exploring How Students Learn. Metacognition refers to one's awareness of and ability to regulate one's own thinking.

Metacognition? - Exploring How Students Learn

Some everyday examples of metacognition include:awareness that you have difficulty remembering people's names in social situationsreminding yourself that you should try to remember the name of a person you just metrealizing that you know an answer to a question but simply can't recall it at the momentrealizing that you should review an article you read last week because you have forgotten many of the key pointsrealizing that there is something wrong with your solution to a problemThese types of mental events are common for all of us. Metacognition may not seem to be an especially important skill until you consider how central it is to effective learning. For example, research demonstrates that good readers monitor their comprehension as they read and poor readers do not. Search IIEP Publications. Toolkit. Home — Train Visual.
