The objective of this survey is measurement of WebQuest-based education on the learning and satisfaction with the course of Curriculum Design on the basis of Merrill’s model. The research methodology is pseudo-experimental along with designing pretest, posttest and control groups. The statistical society of the survey is 107 university students who had passed the course of Curriculum Design for primary school in the year 2016-17. Sampling was simple random sampling including 60 students who were placed in the control group (30 individuals) and the test group (30 individuals). Conducting the survey was on the basis of Merrill’s model.
Research tools for measuring level of satisfaction were Karami’s (2007) questionnaire on the basis of KIRK PATRICK’s model and reliability was measured by Cronbach’s alpha (Arab, 2014). In order to measure learning, researcher-made standardized test was used, validity of the items of the questionnaire was approved by experts, and the test reliability for the variable of satisfaction was achieved 0.83 through Cronbach’s alpha. For data analysis too, multivariable variance and covariance analysis tests were used. The findings about effects of WebQuest-based education and the traditional educational system on learning and satisfaction with curriculum design showed that learning curriculum design in the students of test group (WebQuest-based method) compared to students of control group (traditional method) significantly increased.
