Correlational and Factorial Analyses of Items from the Educational Opportunities Survey Principal Questionnaire.
Mayeske, George W.; And Others
This report presents intercorrelations and factor analyses of items from the principal questionnaire administered as part of the Educational Opportunities Survey (EOS). The correlations among selected items from the questionnaire were computed (1) to display their interrelationships, (2) to document them for other researchers, and (3) to serve as a basis for the factor analyses. The factor analyses were conducted to reduce the number of items so that the volume of data processing and complexity of later analyses would be reduced. All analyses were conducted for three groups of principals--elementary, secondary, and total. The analytic techniques used in all the factor analyses were the Principal Components method of factor extraction and the Varimax method of factor rotation. These techniques were used on a set of 22 and a set of 62 variables pertaining to the principal's background and the school's programs and facilities. The results showed that the variables did not readily fall into any naturally meaningful group. Related documents are ED 017 996, ED 017 997, and EA 001 682. (HW)
