Correlating Teachers' capabilities and Students Performance: A Systematic Review of contemporary studies

  • Aparna, Shivani Shrivastava


Teachers require special skills and capabilities to enhance the students’ performance. The present paper is a systematic review of extant literature. The researchers agree that teachers are one of the most important school-based resources in determining students’ future academic success and lifetime outcomes, yet have simultaneously had difficulties in defining what teacher characteristics make for an effective teacher. This paper reviews the large body of literature on measures of teacher effectiveness, underscoring the diversity of methods by which the general construct of “teacher quality” has been explored, including experience, professional knowledge, and opportunity to learn. It has been found from the studies that teachers should be getting training and re-training through seminars, workshops and conference in order to increase teachers’ effectiveness. Results indicate that teachers with higher self-efficacy beliefs were rated by students as delivering higher instructional quality.
