Factor Analysts at Large: A Critical Review of the Motivational Orientation Literature
Boshier, Roger
Adult Education, 27, 1, 24-47, F 76
The methodology employed in fourteen motivational orientation studies is reviewed. All studies used either the Education Participation Scale, the Continuing Learning Orientation Index, or the Reasons for Educational Participation Scale. Issues discussed concern factor scoring, factor analysis, rotation, scaling, reliability, and the extent to which the three-factor Houle typology is an accurate representative of reality. (Editor/WL)
