Over the years, he has authored over 38 books, published and presented over 1200 research papers, supervised over 200 theses students to completion, and keynoted at more than 350 conferences.

His most recognized work is his Visible Learning research, the culmination of nearly 30 years of examining what works best for student learning and achievement. The Visible Learning research synthesizes more than 1,500 meta-analyses, including more than 90,000 studies involving over 300 million students around the world. Through this profound research and in partnership with Corwin, he has also developed Visible Learningplus professional development aimed at translating the groundbreaking Visible Learning research into a practical model of inquiry and evaluation for schools worldwide.

Professor Hattie has been the recipient of the Hedley Beare Award for Writing in Education (ACEL), AERA Outstanding Reviewer for Educational Research, University Teaching and Supervision Award, Inaugural Secondary Principals Association Leadership in Education Award, Computerworld Excellence Award for Use of IT in Education, and he was elected Fellow of the American Psychological Association as well as Highly Commended in the BearingPoint Awards for Innovation in Technology.
