The majority of this session is rooted in the work of John Hattie and his research outlined in his book "Visible Learning". Through the Visible Learning research, John Hattie has identified more than 250 factors that influence student achievement. He then set about calculating a score or “effect size” for each, according to its bearing on student achievement. The average effect size of these 250 factors was 0.4, a marker that can be shown to represents an (average) year’s growth per year of schooling for a student. Any factor that has an effect size above 0.4 has an even greater positive effect on student learning. Each strategy highlighted (and implemented via Google Forms) has an effect size of greater than 1 years worth of growth and ranges in scores from .64 - 1.33.
