Introduction: The purpose of this research was to predicate the teachers' assessments of the school-students' performances in Math & Sciences fields according to Meeker's Cognitive Abilities Test. These subscales are based on Guilford's intelligence model. These tests identify the comprehensive profile of advantages and disadvantages of cognitive abilities. After performing the tests, specific training interventions can be provided to individuals. Materials & Methods: Through the research, 60 boys and girls among the elementary school-students were selected randomly .Statistical method of multiple regression was used. Prediction variables were Meeker's Test 26 subscales, and the criterion variable was the teacher's assessment. Findings: Regression analysis showed that the best predicting variable of the students' empowerment in Math subjects was NSS (P<0.001), CMU (P<0.001), CSS (P<0.02) and DFU (P<0.04). Furthermore, the best predictors of student empowerments in sciences subject were ESS (P<0.001) and DSR (P<0.03). Discussion & Conclusion: It is possible to identify the students' empowerments via Meeker's Cognitive Abilities Test, and if there are any potential deficiencies, they may be removed by appropriate early interventions and educations.
