This study investigated the extent to which transformed continuous assessment scores are comparable across states in South West Nigeria. The study employed survey and cross-sectional design. The sample consisted of 2520 JSS III students selected from 36 secondary schools in 18 Local Government Areas based on multistage, stratified and random sampling techniques. Data were collected directly from the Ministries of Education, continuous assessment Units with a proforma titled Continuous Assessment Retrieval Format. The data collected were subjected to inferential statistics. ANOVA was used to test null hypothesis at 0.05 level of significance. There was a significant difference in transformed continuous assessment scores in selected school subjects when true score, predictive true score and derived true score were used across the sampled states. Based on the findings, it was recommended that secondary school teachers should be acquainted with the techniques of generating reliable and valid continuous assessment scores. Teachers should be trained the procedure to moderate (transform) continuous assessment scores in schools across the states.
