  1. NB:
  2. ▪ Nb of items: Number of items in the sub-dimension of the validated version
  3. ▪ Nb of rephrased items : Number of rephrased items between initial and final (validated) version
  4. ▪ Overall PCA: List of factors and corresponding number of items in parentheses on which items had some impact, as demonstrated by the PCA analysis and after the oblimin rotation (contribution >0.40). The sum of number of items in parentheses may be over to the number of items of the sub-dimension if an item contributes to several factors
  5. ▪ Cronbach Alpha values: values indicated per sub-dimension and indication of the number of items necessary to bring the sub-dimension value down
  6. ▪ Structural coefficient : the figures indicate the ranking (from the highest to the most little) of the dimensions through MES type PLS
  7. ▪ Dillon-Goldstein’s Rho coefficient: values indicated per sub-dimension, value >0,70 is considered as satisfactory
