The study adopted descriptive survey of a correlation type. Stratified random Sampling Technique was used to select 900 respondents comprising the Centre Managers Course Facilitators and Students Representatives selected from 10 study centres in each of the six geo-political region. Five research hypotheses were generated for the study. Quality Control Mechanism Questionnaire (QCMQ) and Internal Efficiency Checklist were used to collect relevant data. The reliability index of .63 was obtained using split half rehability method for (QCMQ). The data collected were analysed using Pearson Moment Correlation Statistics and tested at .05 significance level. The findings revealed that Quality Control Mechanisms such as supervisory strategies, curriculum delivery resource availability and examination ethics adopted in Nigerian distance education have high significant impacts on the level of internal efficiency. It was however recommended that adequate supervisory strategies such as clinical supervision, micro-teaching, intra and inter centre supervision should be adopted in each of the study centres in a bid to enhance effective quality control mechanisms for positive internal efficiency of Nigerian distance education.
