Abstract:This study investigates which curriculum elements give the biggest influence on perceived training program effectiveness. In this study, Diklat Fungsional Peneliti Tk. Pertama (DFP Tk. Pertama) is chosen because this training program is the only training program in Indonesia that focuses on giving the basic knowledge and skills for researchers. This training program has the main goal to teach sufficient knowledge and skills for the researchers to conduct a high quality research. Therefore, the effectiveness of this training program is very important to ensure that the researchers are able to improve their knowledge and skills to conduct a high quality research in the future. This study intends to measure which curriculum elements give the biggest influences on the perceived effectiveness of DFP Tk. Pertama. To investigate the answer, a research was conducted through a questionnaire survey with a 5 Likert-scale. The measurement of curriculum elements' influence on the perceived training program effectiveness is based on the participants' responses which they put on the questionnaire form. The samples in this study are 30 participants of the DFP Tk. Pertama who have different gender, age, education degree, and education background (natural, technical, and social sciences). The result reveals that curriculum gives a significant influence to the effectiveness of the DFP Tk. Pertama. Measured per curriculum element, the result of the analysis shows that course of the study has the highest influence on the training program effectiveness. On the contrary, the other three of the curriculum elements: textbooks, classroom practices and supporting facilities, have no significant influence on the training program effectiveness. At the end of the training program, the participants agree that the DFP Tk. Pertama is effective to improve their knowledge and skills.
