Hello,

I have my notes from the Short courses out in front of me and am still stuck on something...

I was wondering if you briefly suggest how to interpret the modification indices for EFA provided in version 5. I know that the indices are for the residual correlations but am having trouble wrapping my brain around what a high or low value indicates...

thanks in advance for any help you can provide,
Kim

A modification index is the approximate amount chi-square will drop if the parameter is freed.
