Explanatory factor analysis was conducted within the research in order to present proves for the findings of the measurement tool. A scale of three factors and 36 items was developed at the end of the research. In order to present proof for the reliability of the data collected by the scale; Cronbach Alpha (α) reliability co-efficients were calculated.
