For each of the six subscales, the values of the associated items are averaged. We recommend a factor analysis should be conducted to investigate the structure. The analysis and interpretation of the results should be done by someone who is trained in psychometrics.
The expected internal consistency (Cronbach alpha) for the subscales is above .80 (AMO = .90; EXT = .81; INJ = .85; IDE = .81; INT = .83; IMO = .87).
