The reliability of Persian version of the CERQ-K-P was assessed via internal consistency, item-rest correlations.Factor structure scale with both methods confirmatory factor analysis and principal component analysis using varimax rotation was assessed. The validity of questionnaire was examined from correlation between the subscales and criterion validity. Â Results: The Cronbach's alpha coefficients for all subscales and total scale in participants of both genders were good in psychometric properties and most of the correlations range more than 0.4. The factor structure of CERQ-K-P using the exploratory factor analysis supported of model of 9 main factors and it was explained 68 percent of the variance. Confirmatory factor analysis results also indicate that items are good fit. Moreover, the model of correlation coefficients indicating good validity of the scale between subscales and criterion validity of the questionnaire, the multidimensional anxiety scale for children and children's depression scale.
