Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"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

Meet the Author

John Hattie has spent the bulk of his educational career as a teacher – in a primary, high and mostly in universities. He still works as a cricket coach, loves supervising thesis students and is proud of his cricket team’s performance and the 177 successful completions so far.

His career has been in 10-year stints. After 10 years in degree work in NZ and Toronto, he spent 10 years in New England, 10 years in Western Australia, slightly less than 10 years in North Carolina, 10 years in Auckland, and so far 1 year into his decade (perhaps) in Melbourne. Indeed he is a mover.

John learnt early that the key words in academia were “Publish or perish” although too often he prefers to mishear this as “Publish or Paris”. So 14 books, 400 papers, 400 conferences, and 1400 grocery lists later he still scribes away.

He is President of the International Test Commission, associate editor of the British Journal of Educational Psychology, on 20 editorial boards, advisor to Ministers of various persuasions, indeed will talk to anyone. This reflects his inordinate compulsivity.

He has been awarded a Gold Medal from Australian Principals, has won awards for leadership, teaching, supervision, and reviewing, awards for contribution to cricket and schools, awards for innovation in technology and public service, and Order of Merit from NZ in the Queens Birthday honours, and most important “best Dad from his three boys and dogs” and still working on earning “best husband award” from Janet. John’s complete 69 page vita, in single space and 10 point font, can be requested. It is really dull reading.
