This questionnaire contained 44 questions which were designed based on theories and literature on empowerment. Data were analyzed by means of exploratory factor analysis. Reliability was tested by means of Cronbach's alpha (0.947). The results of principal components analysis and Varimax Rotation showed that the test is saturated with 8 factors which in general predict 62.991% of total variance.
