Abstract

Introduction: Many studies detected factors contributing to the students’ tendency to
lecture notes. This study aimed at evaluating the factors affecting students tendency to
lecture notes in Hormozgan University of Medical Sciences.
Methods: In this descriptive study, 179 students from medicine, nursing & midwifery,
health, and Paramedicine schools were selected through stratified random selection
sampling. Data collection was done using a researcher-made questionnaire, the validity of
which was confirmed by training experts and the reliability was found to be 0.82. Analysis
was performed using SPSS 16 by descriptive and analytical methods.
Results: Of 179 respondents 145 (81%) were female and the rest were male. The average
age was 21±1.9. Out of 39 factors studied three factors, including volumes of textbooks to
lecture notes (93.3%), mismatch of number of some credits with volumes of textbooks
(88.1%), and the availability of summary of textbooks (87.2%), were considered as the
most important factors in using lecture notes, respectively. Lack of study facilities in
dormitory or college (19.6%), absence of awareness of the benefits of textbooks (27.7%),
and making test questions from lecture notes (28.5%), were regarded as the least important
factors. ANOVA results showed that the average tendency to lecture notes is higher among
nursing, midwifery and paramedicine students than medical and health students (P=0.004).
Conclusion: Learning during a semester has a vital role in students’ level of knowledge.
Student's dependence on lecture notes may lead to their academic stagnation. It is
recommended that educational planning authorities emphasize use of textbooks instead of
lecture notes.
