Assessed the extent to which results in exploratory factor analysis (EFA) studies can be replicated by confirmatory factor analysis in the same sample. Used 10 factor structures drawn from the literature. Results show that confirmatory factor models in which all low EFA pattern coefficients were fixed to zero fitted especially poorly. (SLD)
