Exploratory Factor Analysis (EFA), total correlation of items, the Cronbach’s Alpha coefficient and Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA), arithmetical mean, standard deviation, t-test and ANOVA were used for the analysis of the data. The results of the EFA conducted for the scale found that the item factor weight value for the first factor is between .829 and .676; between .732 and .381 for the second factor and between .663 and .574 for the third factor. Results of the CFA found that the adaptation indices were χ2= 633.85; p= 0.00, sd=249, χ2/sd = 2.54, IFI= .95, RFI = .91, GFI = .84, AGFI = .80, CFI = .95, NNFI = .94, NFI = .92 and RMSEA = .076. According to the reliability analysis conducted for the scales, the Cronbach’s Alpha coefficient and the split-half validity coefficients were on and above the border of .70, thus making the scale reliable.
