The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of studying the course of National education and its affect on the assimilation of JerashPrivate University's students of good citizenship concepts? Does the degree of the assimilation of good citizenship concepts of Jerash Private University's students differ from those who studied civics course with the difference of academic level? Population of the study consisted of students of Jerash Private University other than first year students for the academic year 2005/2006 Sample of the study consisted of (159) students who studied civics course prior to the first semester of the academic year 2005/2006 and (159) students who never studied the above course. Random, cluster and stratified method was used for choosing the sample. Subjects of the study were distributed among different Faculties of the University, on the academic level and on gender (male and female) in consistent with distribution of students in the study population and in accordance with its variables. A scale was developed for measuring good citizenship concepts, which consisted of (20) items distributed equally on two concepts, the first is the public participation concept and the second is the affiliation concept. Each item was followed by alternates for the response representing negative, neutral and positive attitudes of the content of each item of the scale. Numbers 1, 2, 3 respectively were allocated for the attitudes. Validity of the scale was verified by presenting it to a number of professorsfrom the University of Jordan, while its reliability was verified by using internal consistency through Crunbach Alfa equation. Coefficient value was (0.76) and the researcher used T-test, One -Way variance analysis (ANOVA) test, and Tukey posterior comparison test for differences between arithmetic means. Results of the study revealed that there are no statistical significance differences attributed to civics course between the two samples. Results also indicated that there are statistical significance differences in the degree of assimilation of good citizenship concepts in favor of second year students and third year level against the fourth year level students who studied civics course. The study recommended that school curricula be reviewed in public education stages and academic course content and to review methods of teaching and evaluation
