Teacher Assessments Good at Predicting Educational Success of Students

Teacher Insights

New research done by King's College, London has revealed that teacher assessments are helpful in predicting the exam scores of students.

The study done across the age group of 7-14 revealed that teacher assessments were correlated with examination scores. It was found to be reliable, heritable and stable as examination scores throughout the schooling period. Genetic correlation was ~.80,and phenotypically (r~.70).


The study shows that teacher assessments could put emphasis away from high-stakes examinations and can be used as a guide to monitory the abilities, inclinations and progress of students. High-stake exams have an impact on teacher's morale and increased testing in schools have caused mental health problems in children in UK.
