The designed scale also had 41 items, which reduced the number to 34 by examining content validity by experts and removing 7 items. In exploratory factor analysis, 9 factors and 34 items were confirmed. The reliability of the instrument was measured using the Cronbach's alpha coefficient and test-retest, 0.961 and 0.861 respectively.
