Abstract We investigate the relationship between teacher licensure test scores and student test achievement and high school course-taking. We focus on three subject/grade combinations—middle school math, ninth-grade algebra and geometry, and ninth-grade biology—and find evidence that a teacher's basic skills test scores are modestly predictive of student achievement in middle school math and highly predictive of student achievement in high school biology. A teacher's subject-specific licensure test scores are a consistent and statistically significant predictor of student achievement only in high school biology. Finally, we find little evidence that students assigned to middle school teachers with higher basic-skills test scores are more likely to take advanced math and science courses in high school. Highlights Investigates relationship between teacher licensure tests and student STEM outcomes. Teacher licensure test scores modestly predict student math gains in middle school. Teacher licensure test scores highly predict student biology gains in ninth grade. Teacher licensure test scores are not predictive of high school STEM course taking.
