The most important factors have been determined by an Explanatory factor analysis which also helped reducing number of questions.

Results: Final tool by six domains had 38 questions. All content validities were higher than +0.6 apart from one at +0.1. Only the activation domain had inappropriate Cronbach at 0.337 and all others were higher than 0.7. Factor analysis reduced number of questions in each domain. Explanatory factor analysis reduced number of questions from the views of information assessment, activation  and coordination and other domains to 5 ,2 and 1 respectively.
