Abstract

The purpose of this study was to determine the extent of principals’ classroom instructional supervision for effective teaching in secondary schools.This study was carried out in Anambra State using the descriptive survey research design. All the six education zones in the state were covered. The population of the study was made up of 6,342 public secondary school teachers in six education zones of the state. The sample for the study was 634 public secondary school teachers in Anambra state. The instrument for data collection was a questionnaire titled “Principals’ Classroom Instructional Supervision Questionnaire (PCISQ), constructed by the researchers. To ensure the validity of the instrument, it was given to three experts, one in measurement and evaluation, and two in Educational Administration all in Chukwuemeka Odumegwu University, Igbariam Campus for validation. The instrument was pilot tested on 20 teachers in one secondary school in Imo State that have similar characteristics as actual sample. The reliability was determined using Cronbach alpha and coefficient of 0.82 was got. The instrument was administered to the respondents by the researchers. On the spot-approach was used. The data collected were analyzed using means, standard deviation and t-test. Standard deviation was used to determine how the teachers’ response varied while t-test was used to test the hypothesis postulated at .05 level of significance. Findings indicated that principals, to a great extent, supervised classroom instruction in secondary schools in Anambra State. It was recommended among others that principals should give supervision of classroom instruction the place it deserves in their work. This study has therefore determined extent of principals’ classroom instructional supervision for effective teaching in secondary schools in Anambra state.
