The main objective of this study was to assess the internal quality assurance practices of principals in public and private secondary schools in Anambra State. The study was a descriptive survey carried out in Anambra state. The population for this study is 739 respondents. The sample size for this study is 370 respondents. This is made up of 129 principals in public secondary schools and 241 principals in private secondary schools in the state. An instrument which was developed by the researchers was used for data collection. The instrument was validated by three experts selected from Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, Anambra State. The reliability of the instrument was established using Cronbach alpha method. Data were collected by the researchers with the help of six research assistants who are teachers in the sampled schools. Data collected for the study were analyzed using mean and standard deviation to answer the research questions. One of the findings was that principals in both public and private secondary schools practice internal quality assurance with regards to quality teaching and learning to a low extent. Accordingly, it was among others recommended that Anambra State government should organize workshops and seminars for principals in public and private secondary schools on internal quality assurance with emphasis on quality teaching and learning in schools.
