How to do a Second Order Factor Analysis for Schmid-Leiman

Postby caydee » Tue Jun 17, 2014 10:41 am

Hi there

I am currently working on Assessment Centre Data and running a Schmid-Leiman Solution/Transformation to see the factor loadings, whilst parceling out the common factor or "g".

In order to do this, I am using the following article:
Exploring item and higher order factor structure with the Schmid–Leiman solution: Syntax codes for SPSS and SAS
by Wolff and Preising (2005).

However, the syntax and article explains how to run the first order Factor Analysis, but does not explain how to obtain the factor loadings for the second order factor analysis.

I may be missing something obvious, but could someone assist me???

:D
