The researcher investigated the accuracy of teacher’s predictions of their preschool students’ academic abilities. Data was collected from seven teachers in six different preschool programs who made predictions on a total 71 students. Overall, 52.1% of the teachers made accurate predictions across CPAA subscales. For phonemic awareness and patterns and functions, the teachers were more likely to overestimate the scores. Teachers were more accurate in predicting scores for male students, except for reading and phonics/writing.
