Feedback can double the rate of learning

By John Hattie

 

My synthesis of more than 900 meta-analyses (2009, 2012) shows that feedback has one of the highest effects on student learning.

 

Dylan Wiliam (2011) has argued that feedback can double the rate of learning.

Carol Dweck: 'The whole idea of growth mindset is to say yes they can'

Carol Dweck: 'The whole idea of growth mindset is to say yes they can' | Formative Assessment for Learning | Scoop.it
Carol Dweck is education’s guru of the moment. The US academic’s “growth mindset” theory has taken schools on both sides of the Atlantic by storm. When TES met the Stanford University psychology professor at the Festival of Education at Wellington College last week, the mere mention of her name was sending teachers into shivers of excitement.  But the woman herself is refreshingly modest about the success of her philosophy. “You never know how influential your idea is going to be,” she says, smi

Beth Dichter's curator insight, June 15, 10:23 PM

Take a look at this visual that describes the learning progression. It looks at three questions as the starting point:

* What's the learning outcome for the lesson?

* How will I know if students have achieved it?

* How will I check if students have achieved it?

A variety of ideas are shared for each of these questions...short and sweet, and great for visual learners.

Having a growth mindset means understanding that intelligence improves through studying and practice. People with a growth mindset know that brain power is like a muscle that grows stronger with training.


The Growth Mindset resources on raisethebarparents.org include short engaging videos, brief quizzes for parents, and follow up actions that parents can take, as well as the research that supports how having a growth mindset helps kids succeed.
