Abstract

This study investigated the role of classroom supervision on teachers’ effectiveness in secondary schools in Enugu State. The population of the study comprised all 3,700 teachers in the 85 public secondary schools of Enugu and Awgu education zones. The sample was made up of 198 teachers from six secondary schools drawn through stratified random sampling technique. The study adopted a descriptive survey design. The instrument for data collection was Role of Classroom Supervision on Teachers’ Effectiveness Questionnaire (RCSTE). Two research questions and two null hypotheses were formulated. The research questions were answered using mean and standard deviation while t-test was used to test the hypotheses at 0.05 level of significance. The major findings showed that classroom observation by supervisors influences to a great extent teachers’ effectiveness and that checking of teachers’ professional documents by classroom supervisors also influences to a great extent teachers’ effectiveness. The opinions of male and female teachers did not differ significantly with regard to the role of classroom supervision on their effectiveness. The opinions of experienced teachers and inexperienced teachers did not differ significantly with regard to the role of classroom supervision on their effectiveness. Based on the findings, it was recommended that deputies and HODs in secondary schools should assist principals in carrying out classroom supervision; the state government should recruit more trained and qualified classroom supervisors and they should all be sensitized to perform their duties as helpers to teachers and not critics.
