The studied sample consisted of 385 students of Shahid Bahonar University of Kerman who were selected using random sampling and data were collected using Molavi’s Communication Skills Scale (MCSS) and Queendom communication skills test. Factor analysis of MCSS revealed support for construct validity of MCSS in a eight factors solution whereby Influencing, Non-verbal, Verbal, Emotional expression, Openness, Awareness of verbal, Internal positive motivation and Inner orientation were extracted as using principal components analysis method and Varimax rotation.
