The instrument was validated by three experts in Measurement and Evaluation, and two specialists in Educational Administration and Planning. Split-half reliability test was employed to determine the reliability of the instrument. The reliability co-efficient obtained for the instrument ranged from 0.84 to 0.91 which showed that the instrument was adequate enough for the study. Data obtained were analysed using descriptive statistics, frequency and percentages. Findings revealed that there is low implementation of induction/orientation programmes for newly recruited teachers in Cross River State public secondary schools.

The results show that effective policy implementation would require considerable consultation with key stakeholders and a baseline survey that will enable systematic implementation and consideration of equity. Mutual accountability and a responsibility mechanism between the government and parents/communities is also a key to the sustainability of the UPE policy.
