Results: Item discriminate validity was shown by 85% scores for each of the questions in the subscale scores were significant and positive. Cronbach's coefficient α 0.86 and interclass correlation Coefficients were >0.75 was calculated for the overall scale. These score showed high validity and reliability of Farsi CAPE questionnaire.
