Then the principal component analysis was applied to the 15-item inventory. The Inventory consisted of one dimension and the load factors were over 0.30 for all items. The explained variance of the inventory was found 33.3 %. The Kuder-Richardson-20 coefficient was determined to be 0.849 and the item-total correlations ranged between 0.335-0.627.
