Glossary of Hattie's influences on student achievement

You can find an older list of influences related to student achievement in Hattie (2009) Visible Learning. 1. Student Self-Reported Grades Self reported grades comes out at the top of all influences. Children are the most accurate when predicting how they will perform. Example for Self-reported grades: Before an exam, ask your class to write down what mark the student expects to achieve. Hattie cites five meta-studies: Mabe/West (1982): Validity of self-evaluation of ability (Abstract)Fachikov/Boud (1989): Student Self-Assessment in Higher Education (Abstract)Ross (1998): Self-assessment in second language testing (Abstract)Falchikov/Goldfinch (2000): Student Peer Assessment in Higher Education (Abstract)Kuncel/Crede/Thomas (2005); The Validity of Self-Reported Grade Point Averages, Class Ranks, and Test Scores (Abstract) 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.

Newman's prompts Finding out why students make mistakes The Australian educator Anne Newman (1977) suggested five significant prompts to help determine where errors may occur in students attempts to solve written problems.

Newman's prompts

She asked students the following questions as they attempted problems. 1. Please read the question to me. 2. Addressing reading. Addressing reading The problem in the video is used to demonstrate how teachers can assist students who have difficulties with the reading of written problems in mathematics: What can a teacher do in the mathematics classroom with a student who has difficulty with reading mathematics problems?

Addressing reading

The task for the teacher in the mathematics classroom is to teach the student to read the particular text under consideration. Provide an orientation Students who have difficulty with reading find it hard to establish a context for a particular text, predict its grammatical structure, predict the meaning of the text and anticipate words that are likely to occur within it. 'This is a problem about a girl who goes on a canoe trip on the Murray River' is a possible orientation to this problem, providing a context to it and enabling students to access unusual words that might be a stumbling block.
