In 2008 John Hattie 's ground-breaking book Visible Learning published to wide critical acclaim. This bestselling research text synthesised the results of more than 15 years research involving millions of students and represented the biggest ever collection of evidence-based research into what actually works in schools to improve learning.
Visible Learning for Teachers & Students is a follow up to that ground breaking research aimed at students, training and practicing teachers, and explains how to apply the principles of Visible Learning to any classroom anywhere in the world. Hattie contextualises his own research and offers practical guidance to the successful implementation of visible learning and visible teaching in the classroom.
This holy grail (TES 2008) of teaching covers numerous areas of learning activity including pupil motivation, curriculum, meta-cognitive strategies, behaviour, teaching strategies, and classroom management.

"Visible Learning for Teachers is a profoundly important book for teachers, school leaders, parents, and policymakers. John Hattie provides the 'jury standard' for educational research. Rather than the typical 'he said, she said' controversy, Hattie has amassed the preponderance of the evidence representing the work of thousands of scholars and more than a quarter-billion children. The jury - teachers, leaders, and parents - need not be swayed by the persuasive power of an individual researcher or the flavor-of-the-month initiative. Rather, we can at last make teaching and leadership decisions based upon the best available evidence from multiple sources. As you read these pages, prepare to be challenged. Hattie forced me to reconsider previously strongly held convictions, but he requires that we elevate the preponderance of the evidence over personal belief. Best of all, Hattie shows us how to determine the impact we have right now with our own students. His methods move education from the 'rear-view mirror' - what happened in other places with other students - to the 'windshield' - what is happening right now with our students. As a result, this book is the most important contribution to educational research and practice in decades." Douglas Reeves Founder, The Leadership and Learning Center, USA "This scope of this text is absolutely staggering. John Hattie deserves to be recognised (and probably will in time) as one of the pioneers of educational and school psychology." Dr Dave Putwain Programme Leader, Educational Psychology, Edge Hill University, UK
