Traditionally, inspection and supervision were used as important tools to ensure efficiency and accountability in the education system. Later adherents of the terminologies of inspection and supervision are used by different countries in different ways. As outlined by Tyagi (2010), inspection is a top-down approach focused on the assessment and evaluation of school improvement based in stated standards, where as supervision focus on providing guidance, support and continuous assessment to teachers for their professional development and improvement in their teaching- learning process. Nevertheless, since the demand of teachers for guidance and support rendered from supervisors has increased from time to time, some countries changed the terminology and preferring the term "supervisor" over that of "inspector". According to, some countries have recently developed more specific terminologies: Malawi, uses "education methods advisor", and Uganda "teacher development advisor".The concepts of "supervision" and "inspection" have been changed frequently in Ethiopian education system and the reason was not clearly pedagogical . In 19 42, educational inspection was practiced for the first time, then it was changed to supervision in the late 1960s , again to inspection in mid 1970s and for the fourth time it shifted to supervision in 1994. Haileselassie stated that.
