COMPONENT, IMAGE, AND FACTOR ANALYSIS OF TESTS OF INTELLECT AND OF MOTOR PERFORMANCE.
HARRIS, CHESTER W.; LIBA, MARIE R.
AN ATTEMPT WAS MADE TO DETERMINE THE EFFECTS OF CERTAIN VARIATIONS IN METHODOLOGY ON THE ANALYSIS OF EXISTING SETS OF DATA IN THE AREAS OF ABILITY OR INTELLIGENCE AND MOTOR PERFORMANCE OR PHYSICAL FITNESS. USING CURRENT DEVELOPMENTS IN THEORY AND METHODS OF FACTOR ANALYSIS DIFFERENT TREATMENTS OF VARIOUS SETS OF DATA, THREE RELATIVELY NEW MODELS WERE INCORPORATED--(1) INCOMPLETE IMAGE ANALYSIS (HARRIS, 1962-KAISER, 1063), (2) APPROXIMATION TO CANONICAL FACTOR ANALYSIS (JORESKOG, 1963), AND (3) ALPHA FACTOR ANALYSIS (KAISER AND CAFFREY, 1965). A FIRST, SYSTEMATIC EXAMINATION OF THE OPERATING CHARACTERISTICS OF THESE NEWER ASPECTS OF FACTOR THEORY WAS THUS OBTAINED. TESTED ALSO WAS AN ANALYTICAL PROCEDURE FOR OBLIQUE ROTATION THAT WAS DESIGNED TO GIVE AN UNAMBIGUOUS ANSWER TO THE QUESTIONS OF WHETHER A GIVEN SET OF VARIABLES CAN BE REASONABLY VIEWED AS A SET OF INDEPENDENT CLUSTERS (HARRIS AND KAISER, 1964). GUILFORD (STRUCTURE OF INTELLECT) AND MOTOR PERFORMANCE MATRICES, ESSENTIALLY CONSISTING OF INDEPENDENT CLUSTERS, WERE USED FOR SELECTION AND EVALUATION OF THE FACTORIAL METHODS. (JH)
