ABSTRACT
The article comments on the book "Visible Learning: A Synthesis of Over 800 Meta-Analyses Relating to Achievement," by John Hattie. It notes that the method of Hattie in deriving his results involves a synthesis of a large number of meta-analyses of studies about education. According to the authors, determining effect sizes is a major aim of Hattie. They claim that the research in the book is limited to one area of schooling and may not be applicable to ordinary teachers.
