Factor Analysis Using "R"
Beaujean, A. Alexander
Practical Assessment, Research & Evaluation, v18 n4 Feb 2013
"R" (R Development Core Team, 2011) is a very powerful tool to analyze data, that is gaining in popularity due to its costs (its free) and flexibility (its open-source). This article gives a general introduction to using "R" (i.e., loading the program, using functions, importing data). Then, using data from Canivez, Konold, Collins, and Wilson (2009), this article walks the user through how to use the program to conduct factor analysis, from both an exploratory and confirmatory approach. (Contains 3 tables.)
