In the next phase, content and face validity were assessed to determine the validity of the questionnaires. Content validity was evaluated by the opinions of the experts and content validity index. Finally, The Cronbach’s alpha coefficient and the Guttman’s Lambda coefficient were calculated. Results: At first and second phases, four questionnaires based on 156 indicators extracted in four domains (context, input, process and output) by researchers were designed for four groups head of department (responsible for Reproductive Health PhD program), faculty members (faculties of Ph.D. in Reproductive Health), graduates and students of this field.

The average of scale-level content validity index was 0.90 and the reliability of the questionnaires of the head of department, faculty members, students and graduates were determined through Cronbach’s alpha coefficient which were 0.98, 0.96, 0.98, and 0.98 respectively. Guttman's Lambda coefficient was 0.98, 0.68, 0.89 and 0.91, respectively.
