Results: Regarding reliability analyses, Cronbach’s alpha internal consistency coefficient was calculated as 0.910 while item-total score correlation coefficients were measured between 0.674 and 0.878. Test-retest correlation coefficient was calculated as r=0.928. As for construct validity, a factor that could explain 73.5% of the variance was obtained. In ROC analysis, area under ROC curve was calculated as 0.956.
