Abstract

The purpose of the present research was to analyze the relationship between the competence of teachers and students’ achievement and to find out the gender differences if any in the competence of teachers. The sample of the study was 100 teachers and 300 students from renowned universities of Rawalpindi and Islamabad representing the academia and students of Pakistan. Goe and Stickler’s four lenses for evaluating the competency of teachers were used in the present study to analyze teachers’ professional competence which includes qualifications of teachers, characteristics of teachers, teachers’ effectiveness and teaching practices. Two questionnaires were used, one for university teachers and the other for students. It was found that the four independent variables have a combined effect on students’ academic achievement. The males teaching practices showed the strongest contribution to the academic achievement of students whereas, the qualification of female teachers demonstrated the strongest contribution to the academic achievement of students.
