Guttman Facet Design and Analysis: A Technique for Attitude Scale Construction.
Hamersma, Richard J.
The main import of the present paper is to discuss what Guttman facet design and analysis is and then to show how this technique can be used in attitude scale construction. Since Guttman is best known for his contribution to scaling theory known as scalogram analysis, a brief historical background is given to indicate how Guttman moved from a unidimensional approach (scalogram analysis) to a multidimensional approach (facet design and analysis). After facet design and analysis is introduced, an example of facet design is presented in relation to an attitude item paradigm for an intergroup situation. Some further research using facet design and analysis is introduced and some elaborations of Guttman's original formulations are expanded. (Author)
