Relations Between Multidimensional Scaling and Three-Mode Factor Analysis.
Tucker, Ledyard R.
Two lines of psychometric interest are combined: a) multidimensional scaling and, b) factor analysis. This is achieved by employing three-mode factor analysis of scalar product matrices, one for each subject. Two of the modes are the group of objects scaled and the third is the sample of subjects. Resulting from this are, an object space, a person space and a system for changing weights given to dimensions and of angles between dimensions in the object space for individuals located at different places in the person space. The development is illustrated with data from an adjective similarity study. (Author/LR)
