Finally, the coefficients showed that the data collection tool has high reliability. In order to check the validity of the questionnaire, confirmatory factor analysis and in order to check the research hypotheses from structural equation modeling, the structural equation modeling (SEM) method was used with the help of SmartPLS 3 software.
