Developing Assessment Capable Visible Learners
Maximizing Skill, Will, and Thrill
26th - 27th November 2018, Sydney

The Visible Learning research is clear that when students know how to learn and are aware of strategies to help them learn, they are able to become their own teachers. Imagine students who describe their learning in these terms: "I know where I'm going, I have the tools I need for the journey, and I monitor my own progress." Now imagine the extraordinary difference this type of ownership makes in their progress over the course of a school year.

Join John Hattie and Doug Fisher as they share with you how to make this scenario an everyday reality in your classroom - one that will significantly increase your students' capacity to thrive as they take responsibility for their own learning. Hear them talk about how the right approach at the right time can create classroom experiences that hit the surface, deep, and transfer phases of learning. This will include:

  • Overview of Visible Learning
  • Overview of Assessment Capable Visible Learners
  • Helping students understand their current performance and where they are going

If there is one core message at this Symposium that we want you to come away with, it is this: Assessment-capable visible learners are cultivated by assessment-capable teachers.


John Hattie and Doug Fisher focus on the major concepts and evidence surrounding characteristics of assessment-capable visible learners.
