Yung, Yiu-Fai; Thissen, David; McLeod, Lori D.
Psychometrika, v64 n2 p113-28 Jun 1999
Explores the relationship between the higher-order factor model and the hierarchical factor model and shows that the Schmid-Leiman transformation process (J. Schmid and J. Leiman, 1957) produces constrained hierarchical factor solutions. Shows that the two models are not mathematically equivalent unless appropriate direct effects are added. (SLD)
