Introduction: One of the important impacts of academic deterioration is its effect on students’ academic satisfaction. This study aimed to compare academic satisfaction and the factors affecting academic deterioration among the students of Isfahan University of Medical Sciences and Payam-e-Noor University of Isfahan.
Methods: This study was a descriptive, comparative cross-sectional research. Research population consisted of 648 students in different branches of Payam-e-Noor Universities in Isfahan province and 350 students of Isfahan University of Medical Sciences in 2016. Data collection tools were a questionnaire for assessing the factors affecting academic deterioration and student academic satisfaction questionnaire. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, independent t-test, Pearson correlation coefficient and stepwise linear regression.
Results: Educational content domain had the highest rank with the mean score of 4±11.62 from the viewpoints of medical sciences students. Among the students of Payam-e-Noor University, educational environment (4.41±0.32) and instructor (4.20±0.25) had the highest mean score respectively. Comparison of the two groups showed that there was a significant difference between the views of the two groups of students on the domains of educational environment (t=4.13, P>0.001) and the instructor (t=3.33, P=0.003). Comparison of the mean scores and standard deviation of academic satisfaction components showed only a significant difference between the two groups regarding satisfaction with the educational environment (t=1.88, P=0.03).
Conclusion: According to the results, it seems that both universities should pay attention to the educational status of students, educational environment, instructor and educational content. In addition, attention to these factors can have a direct and indirect effect on students’ academic satisfaction, thus playing an important role in the advancement of educational goals among the students of universities of medical sciences and Payam-e-Noor Universities.
