"Visible Learning" a review by Don Orlich

Here it is:

Don Orlich's review of Visible Learning

This book is a MUST reading for all involved in teacher education programs, those who determine educational policies and standards, and school evaluators.
The U. S. Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan, might examine Hattie’s critique, and, perhaps, then resign.
Hattie’s contributions to expanding our understanding of various effects on student achievement should receive accolades from every educational organization.
