The sample consisted of 420 teachers and 180 school administrators selected randomly from 10 secondary schools selected by stratified sampling technique using location of schools and ownerships of schools as strata. Two instruments namely "Questionnaire on Management of Classroom Misbehaviour" (QMCM) and "Teacher Effectiveness Scale" (TES) were used to elicit information from the students.
