Level of Trainee Satisfaction with the Courses of the  

Female Faculty Members’ Scientific Research Skills Development Program  


The questionnaire on the satisfaction with the level of the training course was applied to all courses of the Female Faculty Members’ Scientific Research Skills Development Program. The questionnaire consisted of 28 paragraphs distributed to five basic focal areas. The first focal area measured the quality of the training program and all that relates to the objectives and content of the course and the information presented in the course. The second was devoted to trainer evaluation. The third was for evaluating the technological aids used in presenting the course. The fourth measured the quality of the venue in which the courses were held. The fifth measured the quality of the organization of the training courses given, from announcement until they were held.  

The questionnaire analysis results showed that the general level of trainee satisfaction was high in most of the courses held. The remarks of trainees concentrated on the dates on which the courses were carried out; some conflicted with the dates of their lectures and others synchronized with the final exams period, which prevented some of them from attending. Moreover, many trainees demanded that such courses be held frequently on a periodic basis and on different dates so everyone can benefit from them being extremely important. 

Among the significant remarks, too, was the demand by many trainees to specify the groups targeted by the theoretical specialties and practical specialties and to offer special courses for each group based on their interests and training needs, as well as providing an opportunity for practical application on the information presented in the courses.  

The following figures illustrate the percentages of trainee satisfaction with the courses:
