To evaluate the model - factor analysis identified several characteristics fitness There is . In the present article, the ratio of chi-square or chi-square to the ratio of freedom (x 2 / df) Root mean square residue - Display RMR As well as a good fit index GFI And the adjusted value of the fitness index for the degree of freedom AFGIWas used . Results showed that all the characteristic elegance at an acceptable level were significantly - have given - in this letter with the factor structure of this scale is a good fit and statements - this scale are consistent with the underlying structures .
