Factor Analysis: A Tool for Instructional Technology Research.
Winn, William
New ways of using factor analysis in research designs are suggested in this paper that would allow research to move in new directions that are being suggested for educational technology. A brief simplified overview of factor-analytic techniques is given, followed by a description of some recent developments in factor-analytic techniques which make it more useful to the researcher. In addition, certain trends in instructional technology research that seem to require multivariate statistical techniques are examined. Finally, several studies are used to illustrate the various variations of factor analysis, and to show how the techniques can tap into structural as well as performance-based aspects of cognition.
