This study intends to examine the predictive validity of the English Language Teacher Competency Test (ELT-CT) designed by Pishghadam (2010). To achieve this end, 100 teachers were asked to take ELT-CT and 700 students were asked to determine their teacher success. Moreover, studnets` final exam scores were used to analyze the data. The results have shown that the test has predictive validity with respect to both of the dependent variables. Finally, statistical results were discussed, and implications were provided in the context of English language teaching and learning.
