Background: According to the history of education, the term ‘curriculum’ was originally related to the concept of a course of studies followed by a pupil in a teaching institution. Curriculum is a set of specific knowledge, skills and activities for students and it may be defined as planned activities to foster teachers' teaching and student's learning1. The term curriculum refers to the lessons and academic content taught in a school or in a specific course or program. Curriculum evaluation is an essential phase of curriculum development.

Curriculum evaluation is crucial to measuring curriculum effectiveness in any educational setting2. Methods: A cross-sectional design (analytic) was adopted for the study.
