Abstract
This study investigated the extent of principals’ implementation of external supervision feedback for quality assurance in public secondary schools in Imo state.

Population consisted 5,758 respondents made up of all the 395 principals and 5,363 teachers in the 285 public secondary schools in Imo state. A sample of 829 respondents comprising 81 principals and 748 teachers was drawn from the population using multi-stage sampling procedure. Data was collected using a questionnaire of 37 items titled Implementation of External Supervision Feedback Questionnaire (IESFQ) which was validated by three experts. Internal consistency reliability index of 0.89 was obtained for the three sections of the instrument using Cronbach’s alpha method.
