    About Visible Learning for Teachers
    This ground-breaking book features the largest collection of evidence-based research into improving schools. It includes summaries and step-by-step guidance to maximise achievement in schools by applying visible learning to the classroom.

    What is this strategy about?
    There are phases of competence - novice, capable and proficient. Those who are proficient have a deep foundation of factual knowledge. Proficiency requires a metacognitive approach where pupils take charge of their own learning by defining goals and learning progress.

    What is a metacognitive approach?
    The metacognitive approach supports student learning by helping them understand the way they absorb information to help them become more successful learners.
