The study was carried out with 309 teachers and 68 school administrators working in 25 secondary schools in Turkey. The study was carried out with the descriptive survey research. The “Instructional Leadership Scale” was used in the study. “Simple random sampling” method was used in the sample selection. In the analysis of tha data; frequency, arithmetic mean, t-test, one way variance analysis and Dunnett’s T3 test statistics have been used.

According to the results of the study, in all dimensions teachers’ perceptions of instructional leadership behaviors are lower compared to administrators’ perceptions. There is a significant difference between the administrators’ perceptions of their own level of instructional leadership and the teachers’ perceptions of administrators’ instructional leadership. While the teachers’ perceptions of school administrators’ instructional leadership do not vary in terms of gender, it exhibits variance in terms of length of service.
