Correlational and Factorial Analyses of Items from the Twelfth Grade Student Questionnaire of the Educational Opportunities Survey.
Mayeske, George W.; And Others
This report presents the results of correlational and factorial analyses of items from the twelfth-grade student questionnaire of the Educational Opportunities Survey. The correlational analyses were conducted to document the inter-relationships among the items and to serve as a basis for the factor analyses. The factor analyses were conducted in order to reduce the number of variables or items in an empirically meaningful way so that the volume of data processing and complexity of later analyses could be reduced. By empirically meaningful is meant that groups of variables (or factors) would be sought that correlated moderately or highly with one another and low with other groups of variables and that were psychologically or sociologically meaningful groupings.
