The study investigated principals’ quality control mechanisms as determinants of teachers’ job performance in public secondary schools in Imo state. Six research questions and six hypotheses guided the study. The population of the study consisted of 320 principals while the proportionate random sampling technique was used to obtain 200 principals that form the sample size. A 38 item questionnaire titled; “Principals’ Quality Control Mechanisms as Determinants of Teachers’ Job Performance in Public Secondary Schools Questionnaire” (PQCMDTJPQ) was used to obtain responses from respondents. The instrument was validated by three experts, two from the Department of Educational Management and Policy and one from Educational Foundations Department. The reliability of the instrument was established through pilot-testing and analysis using Cronbach alpha which yielded an overall coefficient of 0.84 which was considered reliable enough for the study. Pearson Product Moment Correlation Coefficient was used to answer the research questions and test the hypotheses. The findings of the study indicated that most principals of public secondary schools in the study area do not adequately employ the use of quality control mechanisms to guide teachers’ job performance. It was therefore recommended principal of public secondary schools should deliberately adopt an all-encompassing quality control mechanism that will help to enhance teachers’ job performance.
