Visible Learning

Shift the focus from what teachers are teaching to what students are learning.

Professor John Hattie of the University of Melbourne, Australia, has long researched performance indicators and evaluation in education. Hattie wanted to understand which variables were the most important and those that will have the greatest effect? The result is Visible Learning-- which is a mindset shift and a movement.

The Visible Learning Research

The power of the Visible Learning lies in the research that helps educators understand, measure, and evaluate the impact they can have on student growth and achievement. It’s the world's largest evidence base on what works best in schools to improve student learning.

Hattie's research, spanning nearly three decades, examines and synthesizes over 2,100 meta-analyses that is comprised of more than 132,000 studies. His comprehensive approach involves 300 million students around the world. The research is captured in the Visible Learning MetaX, a research database, making it possible for educators to understand the research, adapt it to your unique context, and make informed decisions based on evidence to maximize their time, energy, and resources.
