The study examined the relationship between quality assurance and internal efficiency of primary school teachers in Ekiti State. The study was a descriptive research design of the survey type. The study population comprised all the 9,310 primary school teachers and all primary school pupils in Ekiti State while a sample of 700 teachers and 700 primary six pupils were selected through random, proportionate and stratified sampling techniques. The instruments used to collect data were questionnaire titled “Quality Assurance Questionnaire” which was answered by teachers and “Teachers Internal Efficiency Questionnaire” which was administered on the pupils. The instruments were validated with reliability coefficients of 0.78 for QAQ and 0.75 for TIEQ. The hypotheses were tested using Pearson’s Product Moment Correlation and t-test at 0.05 level of significance. The findings revealed that there was a significant relationship between quality assurance and internal efficiency of primary school teachers. It was also revealed that there was significant difference in the quality assurance measures provided in rural and urban schools. It was concluded on the basis of the findings of the study that quality assurance is an essential variable of primary school teachers’ internal efficiency. It was therefore recommended that supervising agencies of primary education should closely monitor teachers’ activities, especially those in the rural areas in order to boost their internal efficiency. It was also recommended that workshop and conferences should regularly be organized for primary school administrators, most especially those in the rural areas on the various ways through which their teachers’ activities could be monitored in order to actualize school goals.
