Visible Learning: 800+ Meta Studies And 138 Effects Visualized John Hattie has synthesized more than 800 meta-studies related to achievement. In his book Visible Learning he found 138 influences with positive and negative effects on learning outcomes. Some of Hattie’s critics state that comparing so many different things would be like comparing apples and oranges. But is it? The following visualizations show how many studies Hattie actually read and synthesized for his ground-breaking meta-meta-study on what works in the classroom. Glossary of Hattie's influences on student achievement - VISIBLE LEARNING This Glossary explains influences related to student achievement published in John Hattie’s Visible Learning for teachers (Hattie 2012; 251ff). You can find an older list of influences related to student achievement in Hattie (2009) Visible Learning. 1. Student Self-Reported Grades
In Conversation with Professor John Hattie Few people have generated as much conversation and interest around what works in education as Professor John Hattie. As a proponent of evidence-based quantitative research methodologies on the influence of student achievement, John’s research work is internationally acclaimed. His passion for research and education led him to undertake the largest ever meta-analysis of the effect of different factors on educational outcomes, the result of which was his acclaimed 2007 book, ‘Visible Learning’. John recently contributed two papers to Pearson’s Open Ideas series, both of which have attracted much comment and attention from the education community.
Speaking with: John Hattie on how to improve the quality of education in Australian schools Do we actually know what works when it comes to improving the quality of education in schools? A new four-part ABC documentary series, Revolution School, looks at what the research tells us about what works in education – and what doesn’t. It tells the story of how a typical suburban high school in Victoria, Kambrya College, managed to turn around from rock bottom to being in the top 25% of study scores in the state. Smaller class sizes, private schooling, homework and discipline do not make a difference to the quality of education, explains education expert John Hattie – “what really matters is interaction with teachers, clinical teaching, constantly measuring each student’s knowledge and responding to their individual needs”.
John Hattie's Eight Mind Frames For Teachers “Hattie’s 8 Mind frames”. Video scribe project by Cheryl Reynolds. In Visible Learning for Teachers (p. 159 ff) John Hattie claims that “the major argument in this book underlying powerful impacts in our schools relates to how we think! It is a set of mind frames that underpin our every action and decision in a school; it is a belief that we are evaluators, change agents, adaptive learning experts, seekers of feedback about our impact, engaged in dialogue and challenge, and developers of trust with all, and that we see opportunity in error, and are keen to spread the message about the power, fun, and impact that we have on learning.”
Above & Beyond In an increasingly complex, demanding and competitive 21st century, students need to learn more than the 3R’s they are tested on in school. It’s time to help them go “above & beyond”, by embracing the 4Cs – communication, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity. To get the word out to about the “3Rs + 4Cs” approach, P21 and FableVision partnered to produce a short, animated film called Above & Beyond. Enjoy & share, so we can help ALL our students flourish in the 21st century. Many members of the Partnership for 21st Century Learning helped shape and refine this story – using their communication, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity skills. 50 people and hashtags you MUST check out on Twitter Twitter is an amazing hub of activity, exposing us to people, ideas, resources and tools. These 50 people and hashtags have made me a better educator.

What works in education – Hattie’s list of the greatest effects and why it matters I have been a fan of John Hattie’s work ever since I encountered Visible Learning. Hattie has done the most exhaustive meta-analysis in education. Thanks to him, we can gauge not only the relative effectiveness of almost every educational intervention under the sun but we can compare these interventions on an absolute scale of effect size. Perhaps most importantly, Hattie was able to identify a ‘hinge point’ (as he calls it) from exhaustively comparing everything: the effect size of .40. Anything above such an effect size has more of an impact than just a typical year of academic experience and student growth.
