The Effectiveness of a Training Program for the Development of Moral Intelligence among Preparatory Students

Abstract

This current research aims to identify the effectiveness of a training program in developing moral intelligence and mutual social confidence among middle school students. The researcher made a number of hypotheses for this purpose to achieve the goal of the research. The researcher adopted Al Zawaida (2011) scale prepared according to Coles (1997), which included (60) items, and the mutual social trust scale for (Nazmi 2001) based on Roter's theory included (38) items. The psychometric properties of each of them were verified. A sample of (60) female students from Al Huda Secondary were selected randomly distributed into two groups: experimentaland control group. The researcher considered age, level of intelligence, Academic achievement for the Parents to run the study statistics. The results of the study revealed there are statistically significant differences at the level (0.05) between the average performance of the members of the experimental group in the pre-test and the average performance of the members of the experimental group in the post-test on the scale (mutual social trust) scale in favor of the post-test. The results also showed that there were no statistically significant differences at the level (0.05) between the average performance of the pre-test in the control group and the post-test for the same group (control) for the development of mutual social confidence. The results revealed ther are statistically significant differences at the level (0.05) between the average performances of the members of the experimental group in the post-test and the average performance of the members of the control group in the post-test on the measure of mutual social confidence in favor of the experimental group. The results also showed statistically significant differences between the mean scores of the pre-test for the experimental group and the mean of the deferred test scores in favor of the back-test in mutual social confidence after the lapse of (16) days. In the light of the results of the current research, the researcher presented a set of recommendations and suggestions that expand the research ranges for subsequent research.
