The applicability of Visible Learning to higher education.

. Scholarship of Teaching and Learning in Psychology 1 (1): 79 (2015)


The Visible Learning research is based on a synthesis of 1200 meta-analyses relating to influences on achievement. This article focuses specifically on the evidence and implications for higher education teachers. As nearly every intervention can show some evidence of success, we need to ask not “What works?” but “What works best” and seek comparisons between different ways of influencing student learning. The major implications relate to teachers who work with others to seek evidence of their impact on students, who inform students early what success looks like especially about surface and deep learning, who provide appropriate levels of challenge and feedback, and who have aligned their claims about success, assessment, and teaching.
