New Procedure for Extension Analysis in Exploratory Factor Analysis.
Gorsuch, Richard L.
Educational and Psychological Measurement, v57 n5 p725-40 Oct 1997
In exploratory common factor analysis, extension analysis refers to computing the relationship of the common factors to variables that were not included in the factor analysis. A new extension procedure is presented that gives correlations without using estimated factor scores. Advantages of the new method are illustrated. (SLD)
