Developing learners who know where they are in their learning, where they’re going, and how to get there—in other words, learners who are assessment-capable—is one of the principal aims of Visible Learning. However, we cannot help students be assessment-capable learners if teachers are not assessment-capable themselves. Teachers create assessment-capable learners through various targeted “moves” designed to:

  • Increase teacher clarity
  • Use the right teaching strategies at the right time
  • Provide effective feedback to learners
  • Model effective learning strategies themselves
