The initial tool was designed with 139 items and was reduced to 124 items after two Delphi stages. Quantitative and qualitative formal validity was investigated and its reliability was determined by Cronbach's alpha method and hybrid reliability.
Findings: After determining the validity and reliability, a questionnaire with 16 dimensions and 86 items was designed. The value of the content validity index of all items was above 0.7. In the study of structural validity, the factor load factor of all items, appropriate values mainly above 0.7, reliability of both criteria (Alpha Cronbach, composite reliability) all dimensions above 0.7, average variance and extracted (AVE )showed more than 0.5 in all dimensions.
Conclusion: The results of this study are a good indication of the strength of the factor structure and reliability of the content measurement tools of the content and structural dimensions of the major universities of medical sciences in Region One. This tool can be considered and used by researchers to measure the content and structural dimensions in other universities of medical sciences and higher education institutions.
