Hattie-Lecture about “Visible Learning and The Future of Measurement: Making Learning Visible”

In 2010 the University of Melbourne’s Graduate School of Education (MGSE) has appointed Professor John Hattie, author of “Visible Learning”, as Director of its research institute. In December 2011 Hattie lectured about “The future of measurement” during the MGSE’s Deans Lecture Series.

Measurement invades so many aspects of our life, particularly in our schools. During the past ten years a new revolution has been occurring leading to fascinating new ways to think about measurement. These include the use of technologies, changing conceptions of how to assess the qualities of tests, the measurement of progress, assessing cognitive processes and the globalisation of measurement. This lecture will outline this revolution, showing how many of these advances can be included in a reporting engine accessible to teachers. These assessment reports can make learning more visible to the student and the teacher.

About Visible Learning
Visible Learning means an enhanced role for teachers as they become evaluators of their own teaching. Visible Teaching and Learning occurs when teachers see learning through the eyes of students and help them become their own teachers.

Visible Learning plus is a professional development programme for teachers. It provides an in-depth review and change model for schools based on John Hattie's research. With a seminar and support series the Visible Learning plus team helps schools to find out about the impact they are having on student achievement. www.visiblelearningplus.com
