It could be that the school principals are not actually performing their supervisory roles very well as expected of them. It therefore become imperative to investigate the relationship between principals’ supervisory techniques and teachers’ job performances in public secondary schools in Ebonyi State.

The study was guided by five research questions and five null hypotheses. Two sets of instruments titled, Principals’ Supervisory, Technique Questionnaire (FSTQ) and Teachers’ Job performance Questionnaire (TJPQ) were used for data collection. The instruments were face-validated by five experts all from the department of Educational Foundations, Ebonyi State University, Abakaliki. To ascertain the reliability of the instruments, the instruments were administered on ten public secondary School teachers in Abia State on two different occasions, and their results were correlated using Pearson’s Product Moment Correlation Coefficient which yielded 0.73.
