  1. Principal axis factoring was used with varimax rotation and Kaiser normalization. N=63.Rotation converged in six iterations
  2. The constructs presented in the table had high factors loading thus being valid whereas constructs PEOU5, ATU4, ATU5, SCI4, SCI5, SA5, SW4, SW5 and LC5 were deleted due to low factor loading which was below 0.6.
