The study was started with 223 items and implementations were carried out on 909 high school students. After the study, Cronbach's Alpha coefficient was determined as 0.95. Furthermore, it was determined that item-total and corrected item-total correlations were significant and items were discriminative. The factor analysis has yielded that the items group under a total of 8 factors, total variance amount described was around 0.56 and that significant correlations were present between the factors.
