Abstract

This study aimed to identify the reality of the evaluation of graduate students for scientific research in Jordanian public and private universities. To achieve the objectives of the study, the researcher used the descriptive survey method (a questionnaire) which  consisted of (28) items distributed on the following fields:1) financial funding for scientific research, 2) community support for scientific research, 3) the organization of policies, strategies and legislation, and 4) the environment of research and development. The sample of the study consisted of (351) students, who are studying in public and private universities, including (210) students in public universities and (141) students in private universities. The results of the study showed that the evaluation of students of higher studies for scientific research in Jordanian public and private universities was (high). The ranking of the fields was as follows: the organization of policies, strategies and legislation came first, the environment of research and development came second and the field of community support for scientific research came last. The results also indicated that there were no statistically significant differences at the level of statistical significance (α ≤ 0.05) between the mean of the estimates of the respondents on the fields of study due to gender variable, university type and scientific degree .And that the estimates of the reality of the evaluation of graduate students for scientific research vary depending on the type of university and the type of college.
