Introduction: Educational effectiveness is referred to as the effect of direct educating on the increase of needed knowledge and skill in employees for fulfilling required tasks. In the current era, and according to this definition, education and improvement of human resources is considered as one of the most prominent tasks of organizations due to the frequent environmental changes. Moreover, the awareness of effectiveness rate of educational courses and their efficacy is of great importance for managers. Therefore, the present study aimed to compare and evaluate the past and new methods conducted for holding “Taekwondo coaching grade three” courses.
Methodology: The statistical population of the study consisted of 140 applicants for Taekwondo coaching grade three courses. The participants of the study were divided into two groups: past coached applicants constituting 33 participants, and new coaching applicants constituting 107 participants. A made questionnaire based on Patrick Model (2004) was designed and used as data collection tool including 5 categories of components: “course content quality”, “course foresight”, “overall effectiveness”, “facility effectiveness”, “course instructor effectiveness”. The questionnaire was subject to validity and reliability analysis and verification before being distributed among study participants. Independent Samples t-test was conducted for data analysis.
Results: The level of significance was above 0.05 for all of the components except “course instructor effectiveness”. The null hypothesis is therefore rejected only for this component. In other words, in course content quality, course foresight, total effectiveness, and facility effectiveness, significant difference was not noticed between the two groups of the study. With respect to the fact that the level of significance for course instructor effectiveness is below 0.05 (0.024), the null hypothesis is rejected, indicating that the two groups are different in terms of this component. Levene’s test confirmed the equality of variances.
Discussion: The effectiveness of the new method for holding the course did not show any distinction and difference in comparison to the past method in four components of course content quality, course foresight, total effectiveness, and facility effectiveness. With the findings of the present study, it is suggested that the new method for holding Taekwondo coaching grade three be subject to change in terms of the four mentioned component hereafter.
