After 15 days from the collection of the data, re-test was performed with 205 participants. The language and structure validity of the scale was tested. Internal consistency, test re-test reliability, and item-total item correlation were assessed for reliability. Language validity of the scale is provided. There were 4-factorial structures in construct validity. Cronbach alpha value was 0.880 for the total scale and Cronbach alpha coefficients of the subscales were found between 0.729 and 0.804. There was no significant difference between the test results and re-test results, and the item correlations were sufficient.
