Hattie Ranking: Backup of 138 effects related to student achievement

The goal of this page is to keep track of our visualizations of the effect size list based on the Visible Learning research. John Hattie constantly updates his list. He has first published 138 effects in Hattie (2009) “Visible Learning”, then 150 effects in Hattie (2011) “Visible Learning for Teachers”, and most recently a list of 195 effects in Hattie (2015) “The Applicability of Visible Learning to Higher Education”. His research is now based on nearly 1200 meta-analyses – up from the 800 in Visible Learning (2009). According to Hattie the story underlying the data has hardly changed over time even though some effect sizes were updated and we have some new entries to the list.

Below you can find a backup of our first visualization of (only) 138 influences and effect sizes related to student achievement. This is the original image that has been shared widely over the internet and social networks. Click here to see an updated versions of the Hattie ranking.

    What is the effective size of performance based assessments?

  2. Julia Hodges says:

    I’m interested in knowing if “Trauma Informed Schools” is something that will be given an effect size and added to the ranking of other influences on student achievement. Many schools in my area are jumping on this band wagon and are focusing their entire PD for the year on this idea, and while I think there is some merit to Trauma Informed Schools, I want my district to stay focused on instructional practices: Teacher Clarity, Feedback, Metacognitive Strategies, etc. Can you point me in the direction of any unbiased research that describes the impact of “Trauma Informed Schools” on student achievement and growth? Thank you!

    I think it is really interesting how John Hattie has conducted all these studies to help teachers better influence their students in learning more effectively through feedback.

[…] Abans de continuar i relacionat amb aquesta primera pregunta sobre el perquè de la tutoria, en sociologia de seguida es posa de manifest que els resultats acadèmics van estretament relacionats amb l’assignatura de tutoria. La confirmació d’aquesta afirmació és una recerca de l’any 2009 del sociòleg John Hattie sobre l’impacte de les intervencions pedagògiques i amb la qual ha demostrat que elements com la relació alumne-professor, el desenvolupament professional i la tutoria entre iguals tenen major impacte positiu sobre l’ensenyament que d’altres elements com la incorporació de les TIC o el treball en petits grups. Per tant, el resultat de les assignatures gairebé es decideix més a les tutoria que a les assignatures en si mateixes, i cal ser-ne conscients.
