Hello. Could someone please explain to me in plain English what a factor score in MPlus actually represents? I understand how to produce them, and a bit about how MPlus computes them, but I am struggling with the language for their interpretation.
Thanks very much.

It is the most likely value of a factor for a person given the person's observed values on the factor indicators and the estimated model.

Thank you. That's very clear.
