According to the results of confirmatory factor analysis, all items constituted a meaningful structure under related factors and factor loadings of all items were above .30. As for the reliability analysis, Cronbach Alfa, Guttman and Spearman Brown analyses were carried out and Cronbach Alfa coefficient of total points of the scale was found as .99; the Guttman coefficient was found as .89 and Spearman Brown coefficient was found as .89.
