Understanding Effect Size

John Hattie used a research based universal formula to calculate effect size that researchers from across multiple countries & disciplines & higher ed institutes have used for decades...what made Hattie important for educators is that he focused his‪ research/meta-analyses on educational strategies, concepts or initiatives.

He took the average of the effect sizes of all the strategies, concepts, and initiatives and the average effect size of all of them was .4, and determined that shows approximately a years worth of growth.

It may be more effective in secondary or elementary, but you have to dig deeper, as an average for that strategy if .4 or higher it grows
