  • One of the routes to construct validation of a test is predicting the test's factor structure based on the theory that guided its construction, followed by testing it. The method of choice for such testing is often confirmatory factor analysis (CFA). In CFA, the predicted factor structure of a number of observed variables is translated into the complete covariance matrix over these variables. Next, this matrix is adjusted to the actual covariance matrix, and subsequently compared with it. The… CONTINUE READING
