      This unique and ground-breaking book is the result of 15 years research and synthesises over meta-analyses on the influences on achievement in school-aged students. It builds a story about the power of teachers, feedback, and a model of learning and understanding/5. A meta- analysis of national research: Effects of teaching strategies on student achievement in science in the United States This is a meta-analysis of research published from to on the effect of specific science teaching strategies on student achievement. One study found that summer programs with class size capped at 20 students were more effective than others in producing achievement gains. 1 In another study, researchers found no statistically significant relationship between class size and program quality, but they found positive effects when small classes were combined with significant.

Introduction to Meta-Analysis 21 it is also possible to classify meta-analysis studies into one of two categories: (1) comparison of groups and (2) correlational meta-analysis (Durlak, ).

There is a large body of research on the relationship between class size and student learning. A systematic review of the literature identified 80 studies. [12] There are surely hundreds today. 2 Glass, G.V., & Smith, M.L. Meta-analysis of research on class size and achievement.

In particular, the authors compile various studies examining the relationship between student achievement and 21 psychological, social and demographic. The 5th grade effects of class size on achievement are strong, giving further evidence that class sizes matter.

The non-effects and weak effects of class size on 4th and 5th graders highlights some uncertainty in the literature and data. The heart of the academic debate on class sizes.

The early meta‐analysis by Glass and Smith () analysed the outcomes of 77 studies including comparisons between smaller and larger class sizes on student achievement.

They concluded that a class size reduction had a positive effect on student achievement. Smith found seventy-seven studies on the relationship between class size and student achievement, conducted between and Using meta-analysis to combine results across studies.

Glass and Smith found that achievement increased "when class size is reduced below "'^ However, since the rela-tionship between achievement and class size. John Hattie developed a way of synthesizing various influences in different meta-analyses according to their effect size (Cohen’s d).

In his ground-breaking study “Visible Learning” he ranked influences that are related to learning outcomes from very positive effects to very negative effects. Hattie found that the average effect size of all the interventions he studied.

Finds that small class sizes (20 students or less) are associated with improved academic performance. Effects are strongest in the early grades and among low-income students.

Go to the Top. Case studies. Class Size Eastern and Western perspectives () challenges Hattie's promotion that class size is a "disaster", "One reason for the prevalence of the unimportant view are several highly influential reports which have set in motion a set of messages that have generated a life of their own, separate from the research evidence, and have led to a set of taken for granted.

Most effective educators turn to data-driven research when creating a plan of action. In John Hattie’s book, Visable Learning, A Synthesis of Over Meta-analysis Relating to Achievement, he synthesizes over meta-analyses.

Therefore, what indicators make the greatest impact on student achievement. Ranking Effective Indicators. The effectiveness of small class sizes for improving student achievement has been one of the most debated issues in educational research.

One strand of class size research points to small and insignificant effects, another points to positive and significant effects. In this review, the intervention has been class size : Trine Filges, Christoffer Scavenius Sonne‐Schmidt, Bjørn Christian Viinholt Nielsen.

An analysis of the Tennessee STAR study demonstrated that the economic benefits from higher achievement alone would be expected to yield twice the cost of reducing class size. A meta-analysis of CSR literature revealed that the benefits of smaller class size outweighed the cost in all but three of the peer-reviewed studies.

Using data from the Third International Math and Science Study (TIMSS), we examine the relationship between class size and eighth-grade math achievement in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Korea, Iceland, Singapore, and the United by: o individual pieces of research.

The term ‘meta-analysis’ was coined by Gene Glass in to describe a quantitative approach to reviewing a collection of educational research on the same topic. Put simply, a meta-analysis is a statistical technique that discerns the average impact (effect size) of a factor after exploring the.

This study sought to determine the effects of class size on academic achievement of the pupils. A meta-analysis was undertaken from studies published in onwards that reported data on class size of elementary schools and pupils’ academic achievement.

The primary hypothesis for this thesis was there was a significant effect between class. Meta-analysis can be defined in different ways: as a means of summarizing and combining the quantitative results of research or as a method used to reach the quantitative effect size based on individual studies.

Meta-analysis uses many quantitative approaches and calculation formulas when compiling multiple research by: 5. In their influential meta-analysis of the research on class size and achievement, Glass and Smith () conclude that there is a clear, strong relationship between class size and achievement, and that the relationship is “strongest in well-controlled studies in which pupils were randomly assigned to classes of different sizes.”.

In the span of this rather conventional paper, I wish to review the brief history of the form of quantitative research synthesis that is now generally known as "meta-analysis" (though I can't possibly recount this history as well as has Morton Hunt () in his new book How Science Takes Stock: The story of Meta-Analysis—see a review of this.

Systematic reviews are a type of literature review that uses systematic methods to collect secondary data, critically appraise research studies, and synthesize findings qualitatively or quantitatively. Systematic reviews formulate research questions that are broad or narrow in scope, and identify and synthesize studies that directly relate to the systematic review question.
