    1. Indicate which page within the article discusses the operational definition of your variable
    2. Who originally developed this scale? (Hint: You will find this information within the methods section of the article)
    3. How many questions are included in the scale?
    4. Does your scale have dimensions or multiple components that make up the overall variable? If so, what are those dimensions and which items within the scale are associated with those dimensions?
