To find out the content validity of the statements, the expert judges who had sound knowledge about the concept were selected and then the statements were administered to them. t test was administered to finalize the statements, t value more than 1.75 were included to develop the scale. Thus, 25 statements were finalized, 23 positive and 2 negative statements. Reliability of the statement determines how reliable the statements are to develop the scale odd-even and spearman brown formula was incorporated to find reliability. Final 25 statements were selected with reliability r value of 0.66 and spearman brown formula 0.77 was calculated.
