Content validity was measured using Content Validity Index (Waltz and Basel) by 17 experts and face validity of the scale was assessed using 20 experts in the field of report writing and construct validity were evaluated by review of literature, books, articles, researches and interviews of experts. Moreover, reliability of the scale was determined by internal consistency (Cronbach's alpha) and test-retest (Pearson correlation coefficient).
Findings: At first stage item were developed in the scale and later using content validity index, items with value of more than 75% were retained. Hence, the numbers of items were reduced to 66 numbers. Construct validity of the questionnaire showed 7 factors.
Furthermore, the findings showed, internal consistency reliability (Cronbach's alpha) (
a=0.981) for 7 dimensions and re-test by Pearson correlation coefficient (r=0.912). In final stage, 15 items were deleted thus total number of items reduced to 51 items.
Conclusion: The results of this study showed that questionnaire of nurses with 51 items of the type of report writing Likert is valid and reliable.
