Samples of the study were 836 students from 22 secondary schools in Pekanbaru, Riau, Indonesia. A pilot study was conducted and the alpha cronbach was analysed. All constructs were at the high reliability level which was between 0.774 to 0.931. Data was analysed descriptively to get the mean and percentage. Inferential analysis involving Pearson Correlation and SEM were also conducted using SPSS 22.0 and AMOS 18.0.
