A descriptive survey research design was used. The population of the study was 4014 consisting of 57 principals and3957 teachers from 57 public secondary schools in FCT. A multistage sampling technique was used. The sample size was 345. One instrument was used for data collection. The instrument was a 30-item research questionnaire titled “Assessment of Influence of Quality Assurance on Principal –Teacher Effectiveness in Public Secondary Schools Questionnaire (AIQAPTEPSSQ)”. Validation of the instrument was done by two experts in the Department of Education Foundations (Measurement and Evaluation Unit and Educational Management Unit) of Nasarawa State University, Keffi with validity index of 0.82. The reliability was carried out where the instrument was pilot tested using a test retest method and administered to 2 principals and 28 teachers from 2 schools in Nasarawa State. The result was calculated and a reliability coefficient of 0.72 was obtained, indicating that the instrument was reliable. On the administration of instrument, a letter of introduction was obtained from the Department of Educational Management, introducing the researcher to the director, FCT Secondary Education Board and the respondents.
